Yep, switch to the low-stretch line. You don't have to go Spectra unless your sheeves can't handle the regular line. First thing I did to my Cal when I bought it--removed that silly crap.

The only way I would get a rigless boat is if it was free and the hull was in perfect shape. But usually a rigless hull will be in great disrepair (like a hurricane "survivor"). For a first-timer,...

I've owned my 1984 Cal 31 for 3 years. In that time we've mostly raced her, but gently (okay we have had two collisions and I did fly the spinnaker in 20 kn recently. I won't do that again.) ...
