I taught myself (not done yet!!) in a P-15, and couldn't be happier. I've had wifey and me, and two kids with no problems in it. In fact, it was a little easier to handle with the extra hull weight.
I fell upon it by accident (only dinghy available at local shop) but think I found a real gem of a learning craft. I suspect that learning on a sloop will make it a little easier to transition into a bigger boat also.
Just make sure you inspect the trailer carefully. I find many trailers highly neglected, even with reasonably well-maintained boats sitting on them.
Also, since having my P-15, what little questions and parts needs I have had, have been handled by Precision's excellent support staff. ie Paul. When you call their number, you talk to a guy who knows every model inside and out, parts are readily available, and very reasonably priced.
