How do you plan to use the boat? I sail a Catalina 22, cruising and racing. I enjoy it immensely, and I realize it is neither a flat out racing machine, nor a heavy cruiser. It is well built for its intended purpose (basically a family low-priced, inland-water day-to-weekend pocket cruiser). It enjoys a large support base of fellow C22 sailors and, of course, a still-solvent manufacturer. Beyond that, I couldn't tell which is the better boat for you.

If you get the chance, sail on each of them, raise and lower the rig, etc. That will give you a better idea of which is the better choice for you.

Warm regards,

Pat
