Hi I am new to the site but I have been reading the posts for quite some time. I am looking for some recomendations for a swing keel boat that would be able to handle overnight trips on lake Erie or Ontario. I have looked at Mcgregors (25) and catalina 22...but I am open to other sugestions and advice. My brother-in-law is a harbor master and he says that McGregors are not the way to go but the water ballast thing seems like a good idea since I would be trailering the boat. Let me know what you think. One thing I have learned on this site is that people are not shy about their opinions !! Thank you in advance.
