Following up along these lines; I just saw sitting in the yard a Catalina Capri 22. Maybe not as much elbow room, but a whole lot easier to trailer, rig, launch, and haul.
What a sweet looking little boat. Looks to have nice lines, underbody, and wing keel. She should sail resonably well I suspect.
Head room would be an issue, but for weekend camping style, I would.
