Boat search: J22 vs. Sonar 23
Can anyone help me weigh the pre's & cons of these two boats? I want a fun day sailor that I can easily single hand or day sail with my wife, myself & another couple. Yet want something fast so that I can do some fun Wednesday night club racing with 1-3 buds. I'd like to be under $10,000. Most boats at our club rate under PHRF 130 (30 foot + range) except for a couple of old J24's.
Our C&C 24 was fun & easy, but slow. The J 24's that I've sailed are faster, but too uncomfortable and no fun singlehanding.
I've narrowed my search down to Sonar or J22, but have never actually sailed either boat.
1) Any thoughts on comparing/contrasting the two?
2) Any other boats that I should be considering?
Thanks. One last thing, don't tell my wife that I'm looking for another boat...
