Are your sure it's not on the boat? Look all the way aft in the port quarter berth and in the locker under the head of the port quarter berth--you might be surprised. If not simply measure the distance between the underside of the forward edge of the table and the rail that runs around the front and side edges of the setee and deduct that from the existing post length.
The Cal 29 is a great boat. We had a 1976 2-29 for a l-o-n-g time and regret having given her up to this day. Making up the salon berth is a pain in the neck, however, so we either used the V-berth or the quarter berths 99% of the time.
