Which Catalina 22?
Hey folks, our search for a boat to fit our needs appears to be speeding up.
We're looking at what is claimed to be a Catalina 22 (1986 model). We really like it.
But it has what I've heard/seen termed to be the early front hatch (located on the horizontal surface, and the interior, while appearing to be in very good condition, looks like those shown on older boats (not 1986 models).
Also, for instance, it has plaid cloth on the interior cushions, and the compression post is turned wood, not metal.
So, what years are considered "early" Catalina 22s and what are "newer" model years?
Also, what is recommended for HP on a auxiliary motor for a Catalina 22? What's considered "too heavy"?
Thanks in advance!
