Nice boats! I agree with the previous post that they are above average in build quality. The Nav station is nice, and there is very good engine access. They all seem to have the infamous "CAL Crazing," and many have been painted in an attempt to cover the crazing. Be sure to check for moisture in the decks, the cockpit seats AND the cockpit floor. IIRC, the non-skid should be molded into the Gelcoat, not painted on.
I saw one with painted non-skid in the cockpit that I otherwise liked and put an offer on. Then my wife saw it and raised concerns about the amount of storage space, or lack thereof.
RE the post above; ALL the asking prices for boats in Yachtworld are a bit high.
