Cal 39, another boat review on the horizon

Dear friends and fellow sailors,

With our January issue coming together nicely already (thanks to all the dedicated worker bees around here), it's time to gather sailors' comments about the boats scheduled for review in our March issue. We think you'll like reading what other sailors and owners of specific boats have to say as much as what our reviewers have to say. On this round we're looking for input on the Cal 39. There's just one boat scheduled for review in the March issue, although we'll have a feature boat article on a Catalina 27 and a refit article on a 28-foot trailerable. Stay tuned for those as well.

Back to the review boat: Do you own a Cal 39? Have you had one in the past? Do you know someone who owns or has owned one?

If yes, we'd like to hear from you. Please send your comments to the guy who manages our boat reviews, Dan Spurr:
danspurr@aol.com.

Tell Dan about the sailing characteristics (good and bad), the level of quality in the build, quirky things to watch out for, the good things that are true selling points for this boat, and anything else that springs to mind.

If this isn't a boat you've sailed on in the past, please stay tuned for future messages of this kind. We'll be sending a notice like this every two months. We're bound to come upon a boat that is or has been in your collection over the years.

If you have had experience with the Cal 39, we're anxious to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us"!

The crew at Good Old Boat
