Tanzer 22 or O'day 22?
Hi. looking for a firts boat and I fell in love with a 7.5 tanzer. It waa ssold before I made my mind up but I read so much about tnazer taht it made me consider the 22 also. Now I found a nice looking O'day 22, since teh headroom of the Tanzer is very, very low, I might consider it too. I will spend nigts aboard. So I need a little room.
What got me selled for the Tanzer is the rugged design and performance. I don't cancel my sailing becouse of weather unless its really bad, so I want a boat that can hod its own in rough weather. and the huge roomy cockpit of teh Tanzer is beautifull... For all this I am willing to live with the extra low cabin.
Now is the O'day a good boat too?, can it handle a little rough weather or is it a "protected waters onlly" and too light and nimble as its competitor, the catalina 22?
You see, I am planning on taking it back to argentina an the River plate has 2 main characteristics> very low water and rough choppy waves, ans ussual winds of about 15 knots. its a very open estuary.
The Tanzers rugness is legendary.. is teh O'day a lake boat or it might handle mor eopen spaces?
