Since my current boat is 18 feet, it seems like up is the only way to go. I love my Capri 18 and was looking at the Catalina 22 but then the Compac 23 came back into my radar and I'm looking seriously at that. I'm committed to a rented mooring and a trailer boat; it is the cheapest way to get on the water and if money gets really tight I can skip a season and only pay for insurance (umm.. that hasn't happpened yet).

Catalina makes a good boat for a good price, but the Compac has a salty look that really appeals to me. The price on the Compacs isn't too bad either.

I intend to sail the 18 for 3 more years and then move up. I'd like to develop my skills more on a smaller boat.
