Looking for info on Caliber 35

We are considering purchasing a 1994 vintage Caliber 35. Does anyone have info on how this boat has performed over time?? Also another thread mentioned a keel weakness and I'm wondering how widespread this actually is.

You can google the Caliber 33 as well. Same boat except that the 35 has the sugar-scoop stern. I'm not aware of any keel problems with either one. Practical Sailor did a favorable review of the 33 several years ago. You will get more info if you ask on the Caliber email list here on Sailnet.

Thanks for the info. I talked to Caliber about the keels and they said that there were a few problems but this was caused by incorrectly placed supports while these boats were in dry storage.
