Description:
I am selling my extensively upgraded, meticulously cared for and loved EOS, a 1975 CAL 2-34, to prepare for a circumnavigation aboard a different boat.

CAL boats are loved by their owners and inspire a loyal following. They sail fast in light to medium air and have solidly built hulls. Dedicated owners often brag about the various -and extensive- custom upgrades each has made to their boat. This boat is no exception.

The previous owner, Fred, had begun the process of setting her up for a single-handed voyage from San Francisco to Hawaii. Her rigging was beefed up for offshore voyages, the engine upgraded, an in-boom furling mainsail system installed, and a self-steering windvane installed. Because Fred also owns a marine products company, this very boat was also used to demo some of his company's innovations. Those videos are still online. You have a chance to own a piece of that history.

I purchased this boat with the goal of completing Fred's dream, and starting my own journey to Mexico and beyond. To do so meant a number of significant upgrades to the safety, comfort, and navigation systems of the boat, and spending far more money than the blue book value. Over 2 years, I have painstakingly overhauled, replaced, or upgraded every system on the boat. Most would not understand the time and money spent making these upgrades, but a CAL owner who wishes to cross an ocean would understand the beauty of single-handing this boat in safety and comfort.

I have sailed EOS inside and outside the Bay extensively, and undertook a long coastal cruise to Mexico last October. Her next voyage should be across an ocean, and I am looking for a new owner who will complete this dream. It would be a shame to have her confined to day sailing, and a tragedy to have her used as a live-aboard.

EOS is well recognized and often complemented at the marinas she visits. She shows pride of ownership and is well cared for. The vast improvements demonstrate that no expense was spared to have an ocean-ready boat. She will serve her new owner well for years to come.
