Ericson 35-2 (1969)
LWL: 26'
Beam: 10'
Displacement: 11,600
Draft: 4'11"
Ballast (B/D): 5,000 (43%)
Sail Area (SA/D): 534 (17)

Cal 36 (1966)
LWL: 27'
Beam: 10'3"
Displacement: 11,200
Draft: 5'8"
Ballast (B/D): 4,500 (40%)

Like I mentioned both are fine boats and very similar. Despite a small amount of sail area extra the phrf ratings by the USA sanctioning body ratings are exactly the same at 153.
