Cam - No it's not. It's the best boat for most things.

Practical Sailor is doing a review of 30ish boats from the 70's, all the ones mentioned here are in there. If you don't subscribe - get it (february and March) it's a two parter and they do 6 boats per month.

Pearson and Catalina are in Feb's - and like most boats they are all compromises ( the compromise on my boat is I have to put up with halfboats saying my boat isn't a boat).

My buddy had a Catalina 22, I learned to sail on it; then I went to Hunter31 while he went to a Catalina 30 (both 1986's). Personally, for my tastes, sailing area, uses - Hunter31 kicked the Catalina to the road side in all important aspects.
