There is a single example of a raised deck Cal 40 similar to the Cal 25 & 28.  It was sailing out of Tacoma, WA as recently as the early 2000's.  Jensen got hoodwinked into building it with the promise of 2 more owners to buy copies, but they backed out at the last minute, so only the one was built and delivered.  This may or may not be something you want to include in the remarks.

An interesting story.
If I include it, do you mind if say something like "This from forum user 'Adelie',....." Or, I could use your real name?  For things like this, I like to include attribution of some kind.

Thanks again.

I raced Cal 40's on Puget sound in the mid '90's which is how I came in contact with White Squall.  I went aboard once.

Here's a link to some photos.
