Cal Sailboats

October 9, 2016 | by Rich | 5 comments

Cal Yachts (aka Jensen Marine) was a manufacturer of performance oriented fiberglass sailboats from the 1960s to the 1980s. The Costa Mesa, California, headquartered company was founded in 1957, among the earliest of all-fiberglass, mass-production sailboat builders. Although the brand has been out of production for three decades, the existing fleet is still substantially active in racing and cruising.

  1. Hi, I’m not exactly sure how to email you directly so am leaving a message here. It was suggested by someone from the Sailboat Owners CAL forum site that I get in touch with you to share some resources I discovered during the course of rebuilding my 1975 Westerbeke 4-91 and Paragon transmission. I am located in Bellingham WA and my CAL 2 34 is at Squalicum harbor.

    • Ask your question at the Cal Boats page on facebook.

    • Hi Faith, wanted to let you know that I finally had time to add your content. I wasn’t really sure the best way to do it so I added a Vendor Testimonials page of sorts with your notes. I hope others find this useful.

  2. Hi Will, thanks for your reply. I don’t do facebook so I don’t really have that option :). What I did do was email Richard directly so he could post the resources I have to offer on his site. I’m not sure if he has seen fit to include them as I haven’t checked that site for a couple of weeks. In any case they’re out there in the ethernet should someone want to take advantage of them 🙂 Again, thanks for your interest and happy sailing!

    • I did get your docs, unfortunately I haven’t found time to figure out how best to put them online. I’ll do that soon. Thanks!!
