What's so special about a MacGregor 22

that has you excited to buy it aside from the attractive price? Have you considered other 22 foot boats as a "stepping stone" boat? I don't know much about the MacGregor 22, but Catalina makes a 22ft boat that is easy to sail, can be trailered, able to do an overnight in, and a pretty decent daysailer. It's also pretty easy to buy and sell. If it isn't the most successful production boat ever made, it is in the top 3. The other nice thing about the Catalina 22 is that it doesn't have the "bad rap" associated with it as the MacGregor does, even though the model you are looking at isn't the "bad" one.

Just another option to consider.
