What boats are those?

Anybody here subscribe to "Sailing" magazine? There is an article in the current issue about small boat sailing with two pictures of interesting looking small boats that I can't identify. There's one on the title page, and one larger picture later in the story. Does anybody have any idea what they are?

Time to get out the glasses. The title page picture (by Onne van der Wal) is a J/24 named Tops'l. (There's a J/24 insiglia on the mainsail.) Ramp-launching one of these might be a handful, but I'm sure a determined individual could make it happen. The three photos mid-article seem to be a Catalina 22 - at least that's the type of boat the author says he owned, and spends a bit of time discussing. The larger picture looks like it might be about the size of a Pearson Flyer (30') , though the transom does not look right, there's no port showing in the topsides, and I think they have inboard engines. It is NOT a Tartan 10. though I have seen those on trailers. The article is somewhat short on mentioning specific models, though it does seem to push Macgregor, Catalina and Hunter in sweeping statements. It brings to mind an article in Woodenboat a while back, where a Californian (I think - possibly in San Fransisco?) designed and built a 28' cold-molded trailerable boat for his wife's birthday, or something, and they proceded to clean up on the race course as well as enjoying gunkholing round SFO bay.
