As far as paint peeling, it is bottom paint that needs some refreshing, I beleive. It is peeling, or flaking in about three or four small areas on the bottom, not over the entire bottom. The hull...

May I ask, what would be a good trailer sailer? Makes and models? I was under the impression that the Catalina 22 was one, but now I am not so sure. Maybe something...
