Small first boat

I know this isn't a new thread on here but I figured I would throw out what my needs in a boat would be and see what might fit. First I am 6' about 190lbs. I want a boat that can be single handed as well as rigged and launched alone. I live in Oklahoma so all lake sailing but pretty strong wind that can make things fairly choppy at times. A boat capable of beaching would be nice but not 100% required. Needs to be Car trailer-able or smaller. Also would be nice if my son (9) could ride along with me at times. I want something that will last more than one season as far as enjoyment goes because cost is a factor. I need something to learn on that wont become boring right away and I can sail for a couple seasons before upgrading. Thanks for any insight you can give me
