So... went to look at the Cal and the C&C today. The Cal was a typical Cal really, bit scruffy, old deck hardware (quite a few seized bearings in the tackles) but otherwise solid, not really suitable for more than daysailing and perhaps a single overnight. Just having a coat of new bottom paint and I am hopefully going for a sail on it tomorrow afternoon.
The C&C was enormous by comparison, in generally nice condition, reasonable deck hardware but a couple of soft spots on the foredeck. Inside was nice, bit damp after being sat all winter and an inch or two of water in the bilge. Quite surprised by the amount of room in the cabin, definitely capable of a few days cruising with just the two of us. Should be a bit easier to sail single/shorthanded too as all the lines are lead into the cockpit. She's also getting a fresh coat of bottom paint.
Wife thinks we should get the Cal as it's cheaper to buy, cheaper to buy bits for and cheaper to moor. I think I would outgrow it within a year and be wanting something a bit bigger but can't argue with the price, and shouldn't loose anything on it.
Don't really know what to do, both are viable.
