Looking to buy a boat in the DC area and have some questions
You might want to look at a few other models before taking the leap so that you get a better feel for what you like. If you like the Precision you owe it to your self to look at a nice Merit 22, it will have much better manners under sail. Some others that are popular for what your going to do would be, Tanzer 22 swing keel, Catalina Capri 18 or 22 wing keel, Beneteau 21. If you could find a San Juan 21 or McGragor 21 in good shape they would be good boats as well, although it seems that the good one are few and far between now. Of course the venerable C 22 and the O''Day 222 would be good choices as well.
Best of luck to you
