Re: Cal 21 or Santana 22 for first time sailor

If launching and retrieving wasn't an issue I would recommend the Santana. But a fixed keel on a sailboat is hard to trailer. And the raising and lowering the mast is also a pain in the ass if the boat isn't designed to do that freqently. A lot of trailersailors brag about how quickly they can have the boat in the water. Santana 22 owners probably just assume it is going to be a job that takes a couple of hours.
