You're on target for a trailable boat from a cost standpoint. Being able to work on your boat in your yard and not having marina costs are big factors. Also by trailing you can take your boat to a lot more places.
A long tme back ('84) the Small Boat Journal did an evaluation of small lightweight camp cruisers. This included the Bay Hen (900#), Dovekie (600#), Drascome Coaster (1,060#), Montgomery 17 (1,550#), Old World 18 (1,200#),Slipper 17 (1,250#) Gloucester 18 (1,600#) and a J-22 (arguably trailable 1,750#). I can send you a copy if you want it.
