Cal39 or Catalina38

Agree whole heartedly with Bluesmoods.

The Cal 39 is immensely better tha the Catalina 36 or 38. You are on the right track. Good luck.

CAL 31 - Catalina 30 - Irwin 30 - Pearson 30

I love the Cal 31 in every respect. My ONLY issue would be the cockpit. It is very small. As roomy as most 34''s below. For liveaboard, you would be fine. Just can''t have 4-5 in cockpit comfortably....

Tartan 34

I like these boats as well. But I believe that they came as Centerboarders, fin keels, and scheel keels as well.

Annapolis

I own a Cal but am enamored with Sabres. Particularly the 34, which would suit my needs well. Your guy is wrong. Hunter never built, nor was associated with Sabre. That said,I sailed on a Hunter CC...
