Caliber 33 / 35 Information

There seems to be a major structural problem developing with Caliber 35s. Some Caliber 35s have developed the beginnings of hull structural failure at the area where the hull joins the leading edge of the keel. Cracks will be found running transversely from the front keel edge outward and there may be a zone of cracks 1-2 ft. wide. Caliber has supposedly designed a small bulkhead for retrofit to avoid/remedy the problem to prevent the keel rotation from overstressing or overflexing the hull. A friend of mine had a Caliber 35 which was out of warantee, cracked, and got a lot of help from the factory, but still had to do a major structural hull repair. The problem is supposedly becomming common.
.... NOT a good light air boat.

Caliber 33 / 35 Information

I would appreciate hearing from any owners of a Caliber 33 or 35, from the 1990s and newer. Specifically intersted in how these boats sail (point, down wind); how the internal tanks are and if there any trouble spots (blisters, leaks, etc.) to be aware of. I am impressed with the construction design and quality but can''t seem to get much information on their performance.

Thanks!
