Howzit Dan, Don't know the conditions over by you, but our Cal 27 handles Hawaii's coastal trades like a champ. We were looking for an inexpensive slip filler and were happily surprised with a great sailing boat. WE eventually will move to a bigger boat as we can go to 34' x 11'. Maybe a 34 , but I really like the 31's. A survey should tell you all that you need to know. Most Cals are older but can be found in all states of repair. They have a reputation of being solidly built. I'm impressed with the condition of many original factory parts that are still in good conditon on our T/2, hull #14. My opinion would be to go for it if the price is right for you. I wish you well and post a picture of your "new" vessel.
The Cal 34 Mark III does not have the deaded beam from my understanding. I have a 1977 Cal 34 Mark III. Just beginning to refit it after it was stripped down at the marina where it resided and the PO had died years earlier leaving it abandoned.
