G- That spreader style is predominant on Cals (and also older Catalina 36). There are a lot of them in California. It is a very good boat for the Pacific, one of the first boats I learned how to sail on. There must be 10 of them right around me. There is also a Cape Dory, an unknown cutter, and what appears to be a Moody with the same set up. Its dark now, so hard to tell. Yes, it is a little cold, but only at certain times, not constant. Its nice, I find the heat to be really draining.
More specifically, in the first photo, the one on the left is a Cal, the one in the middle is the cutter(maybe a Pacific Seacraft, its covered), the one on the right is the Cape Dory Edit-not the Dory, maybe the Moody. The second photo, I can't tell right now, but those are smaller boats over there, maybe a Columbia.

Only if you consider 80 degrees Fahrenheit too cold.
