Re: New monohull sailor- Catalina 22
You don't say where you are or what type of sailing you do. We currently have a Cat 22 that we really love. Its a decent compromise and does a little of everything. A powerful ( 6 HP+) and reliable outboard is a must if you go out in the salt water..and I would not trust the boat to sail in more that 20 knots wind or more than a moderate chop, although some people do.
We got " lapped" by a Hobie the other day but were way more comfortable. Table, chairs, bunks, storage, seating....
