Interior Space Cat27vs Ericson27 vs Oday 272

I would like to hear from those who have been on at least two or all three boats how they stack up against each other. Particularly the room in the quarter berths, V-berths and standing headroom.

Re: Catalina 27 vs Ericson 27

Actually that was another question that I forgot to mention. I have read that the Ericson does not sail well in light air. However, I have also read that it does. So where does that leave me? As for...

Re: advice -- swing keel vs water ballast vs fixed keel

Re: Getting a small boat to the bahamas

Not that I am recommending it but Cat22's have crossed the Gulf Stream before. Not something I would want to do but I have read about others doing it.

Re: Painting Catalina 22 Hull For Racing

The boat is a 81 model with many years of wear and tear. Part of the reason for addressing the bottom is for a faster boat but the other reason is me wanting to make her look good as well. I have a...
