Here is a boat that packs a lot of stuff into a limited space: four berths, a dinette, head, stove, icebox, and sink. There's also space in the cockpit for an outboard in a well, right at the feet of the helmsman. Furthermore, you have two choices of bottom configurations: a cast iron fin keel (as shown here) drawing 3' 2", or a keel/centerboard version with 250 lbs. of extra ballast and 2' 6" minimum draft, going to 5' 0" with the board down. For someone on a limited budget, this boat might be on their short list—or they might choose the almost identical

Columbia 22 (with a different deck mold and a less extended bow) shown on page 161. Glancing at the accommodations plans of both vessels, one might conclude that they are identical until checking the dimensional specifications, which expose subtle differences. Best features: The placement of the outboard engine well under the tiller gives the helmsman very good access to the engine controls (although it reduces cockpit space somewhat). Worst features: Her PHRF seems to indicate a performance deficiency versus her comps.
