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!

Mike

Get the HID (hull identification number) and you should be able track down the production year from Catalina 22 specific website/forum or the factory itself. Also, check the title to see what year is listed.

I would think 6-8hp would be ideal for the C22, though you might get away with even less if you're sailing inland lakes.

1986 is when the Mark II models were released.

A Mark II will have:

1) A stainless compression post instead of wood
2) The galley will be forward, between the v-berth and the settees, instead of the quarterberth
3) A dedicated gas tank locker under an aft cockpit seat ( Port, I think )

4HP moved my C22 quite nicely

Show me a picture and I'll verify it for you.

This boat could be an 1986 but not a MK II. It does have the wood compression post and the galley is not up front. We're going to try to look it over Wednesday after work.
It has an electric start 9.9 hp Johnson OB. I wondered if it's too much.
Here's the interior: [IMG][/IMG]

Thanks again!

9.9 hp is about twice as much HP as you need.

I doubt it would cause you problems, as long as it's not too heavy to lift.

If it were me, I'd trade it for a smaller engine and pocket the difference..

I don't know how strong you are but I can't easily lift my 9.9 electric start yamaha for my 5k lb 27ft boat!!

A 5hp you can winterize in your basement.

Not so much the 9.9!!

And... weight placement is a big deal on a C22.. Makes a big difference in performance.

Just sliding forward in the cockpit a foot has a significant effect on trim and therefore performance.... One of the things that makes the boat interesting to sail....

Keep your weight forward in light air...

Get the boat on a reach, and experiment with your weight placement a bit.

If you're paying attention, she'll let you know when you are doing it right.

I miss my C22...

Well, it became a moot point this morning. I was scheduled to look it over Sunday (soonest we could). I saw the ad for it was "deleted by author" last night. Called him this morning, and "yeah, I sold it yesterday."
Guys, thanks for your help. The search continues ...

/sigh

Agreed.
The bite about this one: very good condition, good price, trailer, inexpensive berth (about $65 a month), and 40 minutes from my front door.
I know, one door closes because another is gonna open!
