I'm a shorter person! I'm 5' 9" and my wife is 5' on good day, so I think we'll sleep well in our Catalina 22.

I think you'll be fine, but that was really annoying for me... the pop-top and the bunks in the C22 were all slightly too short for me. I think that *could* be fixed with a different roof lifting system, and having the dinette backrest modified to fold down.

Re: Negative Two Foot Itis

Hey,

For me, a 35 ish foot boat is the right size. I like to day sail solo and take 2-3 day cruises with 4 people. My 28' boat was too small for that. My 35' O'day was perfect for that (a little big for day sails but great on overnight trips) and I expect my 36' C&C will be similar.

I had my first boat, a Catalina 22 for 1 year, then a Newport 28 for 3 years. I have and my O'day 35 for 7 years and I just bought a C&C 110 (36') that I expect to have for a long time.

Barry
