There are a couple of other C34's in the LA area, but are the bubble-top cored-hull variety, not the MkI

I guess a Columbia 34 (centerboard model) would also be a very similar boat.. e.g. 1966-1970 version that shares the same hull as the C-33

If you have one of those in Socal, let me know :)

I just looked at a really nice 1970 Ericson 35' sloop - beautiful lines, clean interior, just needs a little TLC, a new wind speed/direction sensor at the mast tip, and it's got a blown bow windlass....
