Tanzer 22 vs. Paceship P23

I am looking to purchase my first sailboat. I have been doing a lot of research on both the Tanzer 22 and Paceship P23 primarily because there are some for sale in my local area.

I have purchased and read the Start sailing right book as well as watched the two part DVD series. I am signed up for the USPS Squadron saftey course as well as a 15 hr sailing school this spring.

I am looking for something with a fin keel that is stable and easy to learn on. I know Tanzer has a pretty active class association and Paceship has a pretty good website that is up and coming.

I would love any other suggestions on boats in the 20 - 23 ft range that may be a good choice as well. Again this will be my first summer on the water and I am interested in something for day sailing as well as short overnight trips.

Any information/advice would be greatly appreciated.
