Returning to sailing after many yr absence. My last boat was a c&c 24 which we sold in 92. Iím looking for a small daysailor with small cabin for a solo overnight on occasion. Iíve found nice Tanzer 22 and Cal 22 that Iím considering. Both seem well maintained and fairly priced. Any thoughts that would push me towards one or the other?

Re: Hello!

Welcome back! Can't help much with choosing between Cal and Tanzer using first-hand experience. Looking at Sailboatdata is interesting, however. The Tanzer is a much older design (1970 vs 1984), and it is also a good bit heavier. There may be more room below because of the raised deck/cabin trunk design.

The Cal looks more traditional and "shippy" IMHO. Hunt is known for his fast powerboat (Bertram) and OD sailboat (110, 210) designs, so the Cal should be a decent sailer. They were built up through the '90's, but Bangor Punta is known to have had some construction issues through the years. It would be good to be aware of that. Tanzer may have had similar problems - neither company is around now.
