Cal 31 ?

I am looking at a 1982 cal 31 as my first sailboat. I will be sailing on inland lakes on weekends with my wife. I am probably more interested in creature comforts than speed, but want a solid built boat, that sails well. Any information about this boat concerning any strength or weaknesses, would be greatly appreciated.

The Cal 31 is a great boat as are all Cal Boats, solid, fast very good "living appointments". Good boat to cruise and make very respectable time cruising from Point A to Point B and return.

It is a more "performance" oriented cruising boat. Quite a few Cal 31 owners take racing pretty seriously. So I am assuming you have some experience to justify the purchase of a 31 foot boat as your first boat.

Thanks for your comments. I''m getting similar reviews from other folks that I have talk with. I have experience with a cal 27, but nothing larger. You maybe right, it maybe to much boat, however I was trying to avoid the "2 ft. itis".
