CAL 31 owners.....

I fell into a great deal on a CAL 31 a couple years ago. I have been going through all the usual on a used boat; electrical, engine hoses&cooling, brightwork, bottom paint, running rigging and all the rest.

Along the way I have gained a lot of respect for how well the boat is built. With its encapsulated keel, thick fiberglass hull and no dreaded beam, it seems like a very good boat.

They didn’t make that many. I was wondering what anyone has found as structural deficiencies (if any) that I should be concerned with.

Re: CAL 31 owners.....

Not sure how old your post is, but I’m glad to here you say how well it is built as I have also just purchased a 1983 cal 31 in great shape and at a great price. Any in sight on this boat would be great.
