Old Tanzer 22 for ocean sailing ?

I'm looking into buying an affordable boat and found a Tanzer 22 <$2000. In a lot of reviews I read about people sailing it in lakes. Would it be a safe boat for coastal cruising in Maine ? I had a C&C24 and I felt safe with it in up to 4 feet waves or swell, and it felt stable enough to be sailed slightly "over-powered" and the rail almost in the water. Does anyone know how the Tanzer 22 would compare ? In terms of stability, difficulty to capsise, speed ? And what are the weaknesses of the Tanzer 22 that I should check before purchasing an old one ? Thanks a lot !
