JimsCAL The Cat 25 is a nice boat. Are the 5 kids going to be for daysailing or cruising overnight? Would be tight sleeping that many (but better than a Hunter 23!). I'm not a big fan of swing keels, but they do get you into shallow places and also make using a trailer a possibility. A standard marine head with a holding tank is no problem (as long as there is a handy pumpout station).

casioqv The fixed keel is much lower maintenance, sails better, and has more interior room. The swing keel is really only better if you trailer- but if you trailer all the time a 22 would be much easier and quicker to rig.

Need input on C25

I currently have a hunter 23 wing keel but I need a bigger boat. We have five kids (3 yr old to 13 yr old). I am looking at the Catalina 25. That seems to be a good size for the lake I am on. I am looking for input on what to look for. A lot of the ones I see are swing keel. I know they are more work but are they that bad? What about marine head verse porta potty. Any other items I should be looking for? Thanks for you input.
