The Search Is On

One of those bittersweet days today, put my boat up for sale last Sunday and first person that looked at it boat it today, should have asked for more money I guess. This was my first year keeping it at a slip roughly an hour and a half away, which wasn't a big deal, but with being on call everyday but one weekend a month I just couldn't get away to enjoy it. I decided if I sold it I was going back o a trailer sailor and would keep it in dry dock at the local sailing lake and on then take it down to where I was keeping my other boat and rent a guest slip when I'm not on call. My question is I have 4 boats that I have narrowed down to go look at that are all pretty much the same price and all within 3 hours to go look at, they are in no particular order, a Catalina 22 which I owned one for 4 years and am real familiar with, a MacGregor 21, which I have looked at a couple but never sailed, a San Juan 21, only glanced at and totally in the dark about and a Tanzer 22, which I have never seen up close and am really intrigued by. I use the boat on weekends and spend one week a year on vacation on it, the local sailing lake is 1000 acres, the lake where I kept my other boat is 10,000 acres and I'd like to next year sail Lake Michigan on my vacation. Any feed back on the positives or negatives, performance ratings or just plain rants would be appreciated. Thanks.
