Seaward 25 crosses my mind. I did see the 22-24 feet, and see that most of the models you are seeing are a bit sleeker/faster. Nice shoal wing keels for launching.

San Juan 21

Also consider a San Juan 21. It has a swing keel, easy to set up and launch and there are a large number in the Pacific Northwest as they were built in Washington State. Plus there is a large following (Fleet 1) in the Seattle area for racing and technical support.

I am finding myself drawn to the S2 7.3. Any opinions on that trailerable? There are others that have caught my eye yes, but really interested in this.

Original post's requirements:

I would prefer fixed keel over swing keel as I don't want problems out on the water.
I will be sailing in single-handed 95% of time on windy, west coast water- March to October - colder, wetter conditions on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada.
The SJ21 is strictly a protected-waters sailboat. We took ours to Catalina Island last summer in benign conditions, but the trip was decidedly close to the limit for that boat. October around Vancouver Island? You'd be so dead.

I love our SJ21, but Lake Union is a better stage for it than is the northern Pacific.

I would take a good hard look at a Tanzer 22, or any Tanzer (22, 7.5, 26,28). The 22 is trailerable and points well with roomy accomodations below, also one design racing is very common for them. They're fast, comfortable, easy to handle, well made boats. I think there was a swing keel version made aswell.

Another option would be an Edel 665 (3.6" Draft) This is a beautiful boat with classic looking lines, very seaworthy and comfortable enough for a few weekend or coastal trips. Next to a soling, this is the funnest boat I have ever sailed. There is one in the same cove as me, which is hauled out seasonally with a trailer. A very interesting, but well done procedure.

You cant go wrong with either of these boats,

Adam

22-24 foot trailerable

>the point of the journey is not to arrive...isn't that..um..Neil Peart...drummer and lyricist for the Canadian band RUSH?.I believe it is...and what a superb trio of musicians..but I digress...

I like my Seafarer 24...she's trailerable and there are still a few around...not many though... but the C/B version with classic deck and worm gear on the C/B winch is a good all-around weekender light cruiser...and a good lookin ol' gal...the "futura" deck designs are roomier headroom-wise but not as nice lines...good luck..take your time btw...the point of the journey...enjoy the process...and all that good stuff...looking at all your options when you got cash in hand is a Rush.....

If you are looking for a newer boat, what about TES 720? Swing keel, easily trailerable and ramp launched, good accommodations and you can step the mast by yourself. They do have Canadian dealer in Ontario.
