C. Raymond Hunt Associates may have tried to draw boats for Cal that would not look too much like boats of another one of the designer's clients, O'Day—but seems to have had only partial success. A case in point is the O'Day 222 (page 119), designed a year earlier than the Cal 22, which appears to be a disguised Cal 22 despite some significant differences: more ballast, slightly reversed transom vs. vertical transom, keel/centerboard vs. fixed keel, and an inch or two difference in various key dimensions. But still, the resemblance, particularly in the accommodations, is remarkable. Best features: The deck layout is admirably simple, with all lines led to cockpit. Worst features: The Cal 22 came with either a deep (3' 5") or shoal (2' 10") fin keel. The deep keel doesn't match the performance of the Capri, a comp, as is evidenced in the PHRF ratings. The shoal-draft version is too shallow to sail adequately upwind, and too deep to make launching as easy as, say, the swing keel Beneteau First 235. Headroom and space are better in the Beneteau, too. Altogether, judged against her comps, the Cal does not shine.
