Also, there are 4 very small bolts that hold the keel on(you better be seeing they are tight!) Don`t care much for that(much to light weight for me), but the Cat. 25 is worst. Also, the Mac 22 sails better, and tows much better(take much less time to put up, and down at the lake.) It sits much lower in the trailer! Much easier to get in, and out when on the trailer. The wife will like the Cat 22 better? It is better looking. It does have a bigger V-berth(but you have to move the port-o-potty) I think the Mac 22 is also safer. I have had a few of each. Happy Sailing, Capt. Tony P. S. The M
ac will not sink!(there is a Cat. 22 at the bottom of our lake, that sank on it`s very first sail) Got hit by a blast of wind with the pop-top up(owner not that smart). I often wondered if they had good insurance on a bran-new boat?

Eye yai yai... I can't believe that I'm going to respond to this thread... hmmmm... maybe I shouldn't, but just to let you know, boats that have their shrouds 'bolted to the deck' are in fact tied through the deck into a structural bulkhead. Shrouds 'bolted to the hull'... well.... it's one way to make a boat, but not a particularly popular one in the past 40 years. OK. Enough.

Re: MacGregor 22 vs. Catalina 22

There are other realy good options that may be cost worthy as well like an O'day or Santana.
Santana's are built by W.D Shock another Orange county boat manufacture and I for got where they built O'days but having sailed all 4 boats it realy depends on what you would like.
