Cal 2-30 vs ericson 27
Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum but have been reading for at least 4 years. I've owned a couple sailboats in the 20-25' range and live in seattle. I'm currently looking at these two boats as the both have a good build reputation. I'm a cruiser not a racer and I want something that can go offshore. While I realize that neither boat is perfect is three feet worth $3k? Is there any performance benefit...
Another thing to keep in mind, I have 2 kids and a wife that doesn't know how to sail as well as a yellow lab. Thanks in advance and sorry to do the which boat post but I'm torn.
