My bet would be that you cannot get manufacturer parts for 95% of the boats built before 1990. Cat yes, anyone else?

If you dont want something that is going to be a headache, plan to spend $8000 not $800. An operable trailer alone is worth $800. Frankly the little Spectrum looks like a sweet trailerable, Jim Taylor is a first class designer who does nice stuff. If I were looking for what you say you want, this boat or a small S2 would be the way to go - they are head and shoulders above the common trash boats found in this size/price range.

My opinion is this is a boat worth a close look...perhaps you want to look for one asking $5000 and you wont need to get your hands too dirty.

garyguss These were built in Florida by Spectrum Yachts and were designed by Jim Taylor... see the link ..looks like the deck is foam cored rather than balsa which sounds like a plus.. probably not all that speedy but more like a Catalina 22. Has a pop top which can give you decent headroom. Might not be a bad boat for weekending especially on inland lakes. Has a stub keel and a weighted centerboard. Thats all I could find out, same hull was used for the Starwind..

Looking at a 1982 22' Spectrum

I found a 1982 22' Spectrum for sale, can't find much info on them. I have been looking at Cat 22,s as well as O-day and Chryslers. Any opinions on the Spectrum would be a big help. It looks to be in good shape with nice trailer and two full sets of sails for $800.
