Don't believe either of those were a production boat.

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.

That second guy looks a lot like TB... I am getting concerned. TB, if that was you, is that the two head model? And did you use an umbrella for a bimini?

I have the utmost respect for those guys, but IMO those are survival capsules that have some limited wind driven mobility, not really sailboats. I like really small boats and I have a small spot to park, but if you go look at my other two threads on buying, I ended up going with a 17' boat (but I have a big family and need passenger room sometimes, so a big cockpit was crucial). Are you trying to park in a garage? You can get a folding or removable tongue, but you still have the mast to contend with.

Sparrow 12

Awesomest boat ever. I learned to sail on the S/V Jaundice over the summer of 2007, and found it to be stable, fun, and easy for a beginner to handle. Performance into the wind is pretty horrible, but the 150 lb keel kept it upright and sailing in 20 kt winds and 3 foot seas. Plus it's the same color yellow as its namesake, which makes for some great comments from fellow boaters.
I can't post actual links, but pictures of the mighty vessel can be found through the website saveitforparts dot com, by clicking on the link that says 'projects'.

I've had larger bowel movements, personally. Probably more buoyant, as well, but that's perhaps too much information.
