One reason I do it is I like to see what others have done to their CALs and I like knowing what the current going rate of CAL 34s happens to be.
For those who might be curious, there are quite a few Cal 34s in seemingly OK to good condition in the $8-10K zone, a handful of straightforward fixer uppers in the $3-5K bracket, and a few pretty awesome examples of Lapworth's genius for around $15-27K.

You know what?
This makes me happy because just about anyone can get a decent seaworthy boat and from where I sit that's a good thing.
