Cal 2-25

Hi I just bought a cal 2-25 and wanted some input on how they perform, what people think of the boat and any other info anyone wanted to share. I just joined this group and am not familiar with it..are there pics posted anywhere here and are they broken into categories of make/model etc...etc..?
I wish you all the best.

I sailed one for many years.
My experience; a very sturdy pocket cruiser.
she will take a blow with the best of them. Strong and solid.
She is on the heavy side for a 25 footer, so I found light air performance to be a bit lacking. Some have been raced, but I have no idea how well, we cruised and day sailed on ours.
You might want to check and re-bed the chain-plates where they pass through the deck and tie into the bulk head, this can be a source of leaks and the bulk head might rot if not kept up with.
Best of luck with her and welcome.

Wow, she does need a little work on her and one of the suggestions on the survey was just what you just recommended...Thanks for the input, you know your stuff. Where are you located?

Well they were mid seventies vintage boats, some work is to be expected.
You'll bring her back to life, I am sure of it.
I am a Great Lakes sailor. Southern end, originally from Chicago we now sail out of Holland, MI. Great sailing here, except our season is about 6 months, than we have this thing here called winter. Almost out if it now.
Again, good luck with her. You have a great (under appreiciated) boat there.
