This one? Looks like a reasonable trailerable boat. Is the trailer included?

I learned to sail on a Davidson 16 centerboard sloop at a YMCA camp in Howe Sound in the late 60's. Different boat but forgiving and a lot of fun.

yep that's the one..seems like a good cross between a daysailor and a sheltered water cruiser
I have a mutineer 15 - fun and adaptable (roller reefing and a reef on the main)
And I just acquired a free 80s glass lightning in need of some serious trailer repair(new axle, beds etc) - which is basically a giant dinghy

But something small with a couple of berths that can live on a trailer (no marina fees) would be more what I really want/afford. I'd like to cruise the gulf islands this summer
I'm a stupid poor ^$^$@ musician but a dab hand a repair so generally I get things cheap and fix them up..this would humourously be a large expenditure for me
