Just spoke to a local sail maker. He felt that despite my weight, given my age, that I might do better with a Laser Radial. These are apparently the same boat, but with a shorter mast and smaller sail. I never see these for sale, but I suspect I could find a laser hull, and simply add a rig for not a huge amount of money. The mast and spar set from Laserperformance is $660, and the sail is $500. If the rest of the boat is OK, that might work too.
