Re: Opinions on CAL 3-30

The Cal 34 is a solid cruiser, but despite being longer, it is slower than the Cal 3-30. The 34 also has a wheel, while the Cal 3-30 has a tiller. I much prefer the tiller, adds less weitht to boat and is much simpler to maintain then the cable system of the wheel.

Re: Opinions on CAL 3-30

Actually, quite a few of the Cal 34s have a tiller, mine included. I too like the feel of a tiller, but for single handing, be sure you have a good tiller pilot.
As far as speed, I guess you would need to weigh the pros and cons of a slightly faster trip over the comfort the 34 would give you.
For some pics of what a 34 looks like, take a look at my blog in the signature below.
Good luck!

Re: Opinions on CAL 3-30

I stand corrected! All the Cal 34's I have seen on the Chesapeake have wheels. Good to know some have tillers. Lapworth alos put a tiller on his famous Cal 40.

Re: Opinions on CAL 3-30

I love cal’s. I almost bought one myself! My friend had a cal 40, it was a fantastic boat! It seems to me you can’t go wrong with ‘em. (lots of fun to sail)!
