Sailboat101 is on a distinguished road
another option

Another boat that a friend suggested was the Catalina 22. I keep hearing they are fairly light (Thin Hull) and cannot take a lot of rough water would you agree? Now out of these three which one would you choose? 1969 MacGregor Venture vs 1964 Islander Bahama 24 vs mid 70s Catalina 22. I understand a newer boat is better as we are not talking about fine wine. LOL. But the vote for the Islander is higher compare to the Venture even with it being 5 years younger.

At present my plans are to stay inside the gulf but as time passes and I get more seasoned I would like to and plan to stretch my play area. Is a 22 ~ 24 too small to go further out?

Thank you
