Hi, I am looking to buy a late 80s Webbers Cove 22' (Webco 22) to use in Long Island Sound off Mystic and Stonington, CT. I hope to make occasional runs to the Connecticut River and Orient and Montauk in Long Island. I plan to have my 12 and 8 year old kids with me. Is this boat too small for regular use in this area of the Sound? I own a 27' Larson 270 cabin cruiser. Will the smaller Webco be any improvement as far as ride comfort and safety are concerned in the Sound? I am not at all interested in speed and want to use the boat to leisurely explore the local coastline. What kind of chop can the boat handle? Is it primarily a sheltered bay boat? Any feedback would be very much appreciated. Any Webbers Cove owners out there who could chime in? Thanks a ton in advance for your advice.
