dj - if I can handle a C27, YOU can handle a larger boat than 22'. Trust me. When I was looking for our current boat I almost bought a Pearson 26 like the one RanAweigh showed you. I love those things. But I have been very happy with the C27. Plenty of room for my family of 4 - easy to handle, fun to sail, and pretty dang tough.

I've never been a fan of the swing keels. But having a trailerable 22' would definitely lower your ownership costs. Those slip fees add up.
