    I'm going to look at an '81 fin keel Catalina 22 this weekend. Are they difficult to trailer launch given the depth of the keel? Any other particular issues that come to mind?

    With a 3' 6" draft, she's not an ideal trailer sailor. Launching may prove challenging or even impossible depending on the ramps in your area. It would be impossible where I live.
