You should join the cal club here on sailnet. Seasoned Cal owners who can tell you anything you would like to know. FYI - Bill Lapworth (designer of Cal''s) retired on a 2-46

I am a yacht Broker who has sold over 15 Cal 246 in the last ten years. Eight have gone world cruising and would not trade their boats for any other cruising boat. Of course I have an interest in selling you a boat and would be happy to answer any other questions. Boseyachts@prodigy.com

I looked over a Cal 46 and liked it.

Lapworth is one of the great NA''s.

As a former Catalina owner... and one of our mods here is both a tech editor and another actually owns one.. the 46 is the highlight of the brand. Google the Catalina Owners Group, and you can hear the testaments as there is a huge difference between their say 27's and their 40+

Solid, will do anything you ask of them, and in most cases can go anywhere any of the bigger brands advert themselves. Naturally all up to the used condition and the upgraded conditioned ability, but all in all - a very fair and respectable "you can get there" cruiser.

Good luck..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
