I considered Flicka 20 but it is a very slow boat that tends to be very expensive.
I hear you on the Flicka, I've been watching for a project Flicka for a few months now and had nothing interesting come up. There is one with a rebuilt cockpit, but that's a little too "project" for me :P I've always been enamored by them.

As for keeping it in your yard, how much space do you have? Does it have to be a trailer or can you have it shipped and put on blocks? If it's gonna be in the yard for 2 years, you can spread the expense out and it'd probably be cheaper than having a trailer. Just a thought.
