Thanks for the info. I know I won't be ready to race it this summer but do you think I would notice a great difference between the Tanzer and the P23 if I were to race them next season. This year I am doing my best not to have the family swimming while sailing.
I have two boats I am looking at. A 1973 P23 for $3,000 and a 1985 T22 w/trailer for $2500.
The P23 is in great shape with 3 sails, a 2008 8hp honda long shaft motor, all rigging, PFD's and saftey gear.
The T22 is in good shape with the two original sails, an early 1990's outboard, a trailer and not much else in the way of gear.
I plan on getting involved in the coming years with a local yacht clubs low key racing series and hope either of these boats could handle something like that.
Any thoughts on either boat based on descriptions.
