Re: Need Performance Info: Catalina 22 vs Columbia 23T
Per the OP: Don't know about the Columbia. The C22 shouldn't be counted on for offshore work. Plenty of people have taken a C22 across to Bahamas, however, you would have to be very careful with weather window. If you have any weeds in the water in your area the swing keel cable is a PITA (it will harvest weeds). I like that the Columbia has an all wood interior. That would be easer to work on, or modify.
