I have an O'Day 32 CC I just bought here in Florida. Loving it. Sold my nice Catalina 27, needed more room (hey, isn't that always true, lol).

Anyone else here have one?

Downeaster 38' Cutter, '81. Taken out twice now yesterday's fun involving a glorious sunny but chilly blast out of San Diego bay with 15-20 knot winds and 8-10 foot swells offset by the Commanders spicy lasanga.

Perfect!!

Hanse 371

My wife and I sail a 2004 Hanse 371 - "Blondie". We bought her new - first brand new boat after owning 3 C&C's and an O'Day. The Hanse 371 is a great boat - strongly built in Germany (glassed in stringers & bulkheads, etc) with a CE Certification Category A (Ocean). Many have sailed accross the Atlantic. She sails well and is very fast.

Hi Brad,
I am contemplating buying a Cal 2-30 for ocean cruising and saw your note about adding a 5' extension to a Cal 2-30. Do you have some pictures of what you have done as I would appreciate seeing them?
Thanks,
