Whatever your experiences were on SF bay

does very well there but everywhere else it sails
about on a par with the Catalina
, that's why I found the national base ratings. Tahoe is not a heavy weather
Mecca like SF and those ratings would be more indicative of relative performance there.
I do take the listed weights with a grain of salt
, but for comparing relative weight they do just fine unless one has knowledge that one builder
overbuilt by more than another.
Once again the OP's tow vehicle will probably be the key issue and boat and trailer weight the deciding factor.
