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.

What's the difference in displacement? My Nonsuch 30 is only about 4 feet or 15 percent longer than the Nonsuch 26 it replaced, BUT its displacement is more than 35 percent greater. The 30 is a much, much bigger boat than the 26.

Of course, layout can make a huge difference in how a boat "fits" your needs. Have you been aboard both?

My last bit of unsolicited advice is to make sure that your admiral is part of the decision-making process. She may not know much about sailing (yet), but you will sail more, and have more fun, if SHE loves the boat.

Re: Cal 2-30 vs ericson 27

The Cal 2-30 is 10,500 lbs. The Ericson 27 is 6600 lbs. Both boats have a 9' beam. My highly uneducated and uninformed guess is that the Cal is going to be more comfortable. The 3' will give you more room below, and the extra weight should make her feel more stable, so I think you made a good call. Good luck with her! Do you have a survey scheduled?
