Cal 33 (Lapworth Design)

Are there any owners or others with experience on '71-'73 Cal 33s? I'm looking at one in the PNW right now and having a hard time finding a lot of information, other than that Lapworth designs are well regarded and that Cals of that era were generally well-built. Particularly curious about performance and typical red flags to look for.

Re: Cal 33 (Lapworth Design)

This is a bolt-on keel design with deep, heavy keel, so I would look very carefully at the keel bolts condition and keel to hull joint, signs of water intrusion, cracks, etc. This can be a very expensive problem to fix.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
