Cal 35

I've been searching for a small affordable cruiser for myself and fiancee in the 34-38 ft.range.I think I found one in a Cal 35.She's roomy, has a good turn of speed, and is made well.I've been searching various places trying to gather as much information as I can about the boat before making the final plunge.What reviews I've seen so far are favorable.I used to have a link to a website on my pc that gave ratio information on boats...i.e, comfort, capsize, etc.I lost the link when I had a hard drive failure on my pc. If anyone knows of such a site, or has information they can share concerning the Cal 35, I would really appreciate it.

Assume this is the Cal 35 from the late 70s - early 80s. Not the earlier one. My Cal 33-2 is the boat that replaced the 35 in 1984 and is similar in size, specs, construction, etc. just a bit more modern design. The 35 was one of the last Lapworth designs while my boat is a Hunt design. Your take on the Cal is right on - well made, roomy, and a good sailing boat. Good luck.

Thanks for the comments "JimsCal." All the ratio numbers look very good on the boat as a "moderate cruiser." New England handicapping lists the boat at 141. Pretty respectable for a cruiser. I think the boat will suit me very well for what I want to do with her. Coastal cruise, and maybe a bit further.

Fair winds to ya!
