hello again firemedic. The guy in sarasota with the Catalina 22 has an email address. Here it is:

PS- I can''t vouch for the guy or the boat, because I haven''t met either one. I just came across it in my search for a boat and it seems like a good deal to me, if it pans out.

$3200 and not sure what to buy?????

A-Dock - King Harbor Marina, Redondo Beach - $2200 asking price for some small sailboat (not sure of the model). Blue hull. sails look ok. Has an outboard. Decent on the inside. Rigging looks ok for a boat of that size. Guy selling it is open to offers. [sorry to don''t his number with me at the moment]

firemedic, there is a guy in Sarasota who is selling a C-22 and trailer fairly cheap. I almost bought it and I''m not crazy about the boats.
Look on the trailersailor website in their classified forum. Strangely his ad says he is selling a trailer for a 22'' boat, but he is also trying to sell the Catalina. When you get to the forum you can click on edit it your toolbar (next to "file>) and select the FIND option. Type in GENE and you should locate him. He was asking $1500 for the boat and trailer. And I believe all it needed was an outboard.

I am looking for a Catalina 22 to purchase, preferable an older model. Happysails2u if you still have the boat send me an e-mail, my mom/dad and brothers live in Sarasota and can come take a look at it for me. Thanks Bo

I am very impressed with the Mirage 236 as well. I have a friend at our club who has one and we sail it regularly. If you can find one it''s a great choice.
Another idea for you is the Seafarer 22 or 23, normally they sell for a little more than your budget, but right now there is one on Yachtworld that is within your budget and it''s supposed to be in good shape. I had one of these a few years ago and i could kick myself for selling it. These boats are very stable, well mannered under sail, shallow draft, they are gorgeous to look at and have a very comfortable motion.
Good luck

Well, I may get shot on here, but we bought a 1982 Hunter 22 a couple of years ago which we love. Only made for a few years to make way for the 23, which isn''t nearly as good, so not many out there. If you can find one take a look, it''s a very nice boat. Sails well, tons of room, fairly quick. Good luck

I''ll tell you what the folks in the know told me when buying my first boat. Catalina 22, Catalina 22, Catalina 22 ... period ... in no particular order. And to them I say - thank you!...thank you!...thank you!
