Thanks for the comments guys!
Again it seems that about 8/10 trailer sailors say that a Ranger should do ok with a 22 footer. I think I may be researching this to death, but I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. I've been studying this boat upgrade for about 3 months now and trying to find something that would work without being too large, small, heavy or too much of a pain.
Comparing the Catalina and that starts with "M" I'm seeing now that the Cat is a much better boat. I got an email from another guy that told me that the "M" was the sailing equivalent of a Ford Pinto. Hmmm...more to think about.
Basically, this is what I've narrowed my search down to (Uh....please excuse the "M" word in the title, I think I've been learning sine I wrote this up!)

I'll search this forum for more comments on the boats that I'm looking at.
