He was mentioning a Walker Bay sailing dinghy...

If he want's something fairly capable, but small... the West Wight Potter is an excellent choice. Another good one would be a Compac SunCat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
