First Boat Recommendation
Last week while returning from my boat on our first sail of the year my 18 year old son, who just graduated from high school, surprised me with "you know, I'd really like to get my own boat and learn to sail." I spent the last week looking at boats for sale, more than I normally do much to the chagrin of my wife, and have narrowed it down to either a 1982 MacGregor 22 or a Cal 21, both are priced about the same though the MacGregor is 10 years newer. My question is, having never sailed on either which would you choose for:
A) A first boat
D) Forgiveness while learning to sail.
Thanks for your input.
