Approx. trailering wgt.: 4,700 lbs.

Johann Tanzer designed this 22%-foot boat in 1970 and sold more than 2,200 copies over the following 17 years. Then (the story goes) his nervous banker closed down his otherwise healthy operation, sending him and his company into bankruptcy and ruin. She was available with either a swing keel (shown below in phantom view; draft 2' 0" keel up, 4' 0" keel down) or swept-back fin keel, which turned out to be the more popular choice. Best features: Although the boat has not been made for over 20 years, at the time of writing there is still a strong class association with an Internet presence, which promotes both one-design racing and periodic cruising rendezvous. Despite her somewhat low SA/D ratio, the boat is relatively fast, as indicated by her PHRF rating compared to her comps. Worst features: The mainsheet is fixed to the cockpit sole just ahead of the tiller, which reduces the spaciousness of the otherwise big, wide cockpit. The side-opening icebox loses some of its cool every time the door is opened, and users risk being showered with food if the door is opened on starboard tack. Despite her beam near the top of her comp range, she registers the lowest Space Index as a result of her low headroom. The forward end of her V-berth is too narrow for two adults.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
