The first of a long line of McCurdy & Rhodes designs for Seafarer Fiberglass Yachts of Huntington, NY, is shown here. This model featured a streamlined forward deck and only one portlight on each side. Later versions of the "22" used a new deck molding, with extra ports that give more light below, and also offered a choice of two keels, either the 2' 10" so-called "high performance" keel shown here, designed primarily for better stability and speed, or a 2' 1" keel for easier launching and retrieving from a trailer. Best features: The coaming on the early boats (as shown here) curled up over the cabin-top to ease attachment of a weather-tight dodger, a great convenience when cruising in rainy weather. Worst features: The shoal-keel version's performance will not satisfy most sailors, and the smaller, shallower rudder that is needed to match the shoal keel will not perform as well either. We recommend sticking with the "high performance" version—which can't be expected to match her comps' upwind pointing ability, since she's just not deep enough. The skeg-mounted rudder in both early and late versions has been known to develop problems at the gudgeons. In the early one-port-per-side boats, some owners have sawn holes for new ports to secure additional light below.
