We have owned a Cal 2-46 since 2014. She was sailed to NZ by a lovely Swiss couple. The hull had osmosis
so we 100% stripped it back and glassed over. We removed the 8kwh diesel generator
and used the space for a water
maker. Plus a 100% renovate and renew right through. Rigging
. thru hulls. Hatches. Pretty much a new boat
now.Not a cheap
exercise but well worth the effort. We spent winter 2017 in Tonga
. She is a perfect offshore
live aboard. And the massive engine
room/ workshop is a godsend.
We would be confident to sail her anywhere.
