Santana 22 or ericson 27 share for sf bay

Hi all

If you could choose between the sole ownership of a Santana 22 or a share in an ericson 27 for SF bay sailing which would you choose? Cost would be similar enough. Availability better on full ownership but not too restrictive on ericson. Would the 27 sail notably better? I am leaning toward the bigger boat.

Cheers

I would take the 22 and have fun. I had a Ranger 22 and sailed out of Brickyard marina in Richmond. Loved it! Moved to Texas, sold it and now have a flicka 20 in Galveston. The 22 is cheaper to maintain, no splitting fees, 24-7 use and a hell of a lot of fun. Go for it!

Re: Santana 22 or ericson 27 share for sf bay

IMO, the Santana 22 was "born for the Bay". It is one of Gary Mull's earliest designs and one of the most enduring. I believe that there is still an active one-design class on the Bay with all that this entails. They are a bit dated, but still sail as well as ever!

In your case, a lot depends on the partnership, and whether that would be an attribute or a detriment... sometimes having a partner to kick things around with is good, but having sole responsibility for a yacht is a great stimulus for learning!

Cheers,

Jim
