Whitebird is on a distinguished road
Catalina 22s and 25s or other pocket cruisers

I have been sailing a Catalina 25 for the past 4 years on a small lake. Geronimo is very comfortable,easy to singlehandle, built tough, sleeps 2 well, and trailerable. I am also looking to find a boat that I can take on the road for extended cruises. The O''day 25 may fit the ticket. The shoal keel will be an aid to gunkholing. Most sailing has been on the Mississippi River. There I have a Venture 23 Newport. The weighted swing keel when sailing the river is very forgiving and alows beaching, something very important for the kids. Good luck on your search.
