Comparing 3 boats I have found...

So I am always poking around the Sailboat Listings site and various others just in case something comes up and I can join the spend all my money on a boat fraternity. So I have found a few boats that I would like folks' opinions on. All are very similiar in condition, cost, and what they come with so I am looking for info on build quality, sailing characteristics, ease of steping and unsteping the mast, etc.. So here they are;
  • 1977 O'Day 22'
  • 1981 Catalina 22'
  • 1981 Hunter 22'

Still not sure if I want to go with a 22 footer or wait and just get a 25 foot or so, but my "need" for my own boat may just throw me over the edge.

Thanks in advance!

These boats are extremely similar in all regards. The differences between them do not rise above the level of nit-picking. If this kind of boat fits your needs then I would advise you to buy whichever seems the better value in terms of price, condition, location, whatever.
