Wanted Cal 28-2
Anyone near the West Coast contemplating selling their Cal 28-2? It was produced between years 1985~1989.

If it's been given adequate love & been consistently well cared for, please give me a yell....

Yes.......thank you Tanely, I went to see it last weekend & it's in pretty good shape & epuipt to the teeth. Only problem is I'm already pursueing a boat purchase at the moment & will likely have to pass on it.

Interesting how timing plays havoc.

Many thanks

Re: Wanted Cal 28-2
Greetings, Tanley! I'm in the process of finding a very-good used Cal 28-2 (1986-89), having happily owned and sailed a 1987 Cal 22 on an inland lake for 23 years. I've reviewed your posts both here and on and found them to be very informed, instructive, & comprehensive. Thus & so, I'd like to ask the following:

1. If you were buying now, would you prefer an '88/'89 model over an '86/'87 model as being measurably better constructed or appointed, in one or more ways, by the mfgr? I'm aware, e.g., that the later models were fitted with 18HP Yanmars rather than 13.5HP Westerbekes, which presumably move the boat more masterfully through chop, etc.

2. Can you provide your most up-to-date list of issues to look for when examining used boats for sale?

3. Can you provide your most up-to-date list of asking/sold prices for these boats from

If you'd be open to chat about any or all of this, or would like an e-address to pass any of the above along, pls let me know and I'll provide direct contact information to you. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me!
