Hi Florida Newbie
Our first boat was a Catalina 22 with a swing keel
and a pop top. It was a lot of fun.
Sleeping four people on it would be a bit close, imho, but I suppose you could do it.
Two can easily sleep in the V berth in relative comfort.
We wore that poor boat out entertaining people every night after work and on weekends. It was not an idle boat.
If you can, buy a trailer and take it all over the place. We hauled ours as we moved across country for our jobs: from Seattle
to Long Key FL and back, then Seattle
, then Maine
, where we sold it after a few years.
Can't go wrong with that boat for a starter.
Cheers and welcome aboard.
