Boatsmith The y are different boats for sure. I wouldn't want a Venture personally. The Cat 22 has the advantages of easy trailer-ability which corresponds to a much greater cruising range. It also has a great class organization. If you relly want to learn to sail well you can start racing one design. You will see the vast difference in the front of the fleet and the back of the fleet. The folks at the front are most likely going to be willing to share all they know with you so as to enable you to enjoy your boat to the max. If you want to keep the boat in a slip and just do some local sailing and or some further liveaboard cruising then I would prefer the Islander Bahama. Survey anything before you commit. Just my thhoughts

SD, how can the OP hijack his own thread?



By interjecting your admonition that he read your sailnet initiation thread, and offering no information that relates to the OPs question, have you not in fact hijacked the thread yourself?
Please read your own sig link.
Yes, i have also hijkacked the thread, so i will read the sig link as well.

Sailboat, the Islander is a better choice, BTW.

Sailboat101 Agreed!

Thank you for the guidance!

Argh! Read all the way up the thread, I created it. Now with that said I did goof it up by posting my other two questions in the same thread. So I will read your newbie thread and try to fix it.

Thx

svHyLyte Frankly I am not familure enough with the Catalina 22 to offer a valid opinion. I am acquainted with Catalina in general, and did have occassion to meet Frank Butler on several occassions and discuss his boats and company, and I do think one gets a lot of boat for the money and generally of better quality than some are prone to imply. As for the Islander, one of my friends had one when I was younger and we covered a lot of ground pottering around SF Bay in the late 60's, which is s tough cruising ground for any small yacht.

FWIW...

Sailboat101 Do you like the Islander 24 over a newer Catalina 22?
