Looking For Very Tiny Pocket Cruiser - help?

I have owned a lot of boats over the years and have learned that the smaller and simpler, the more likely I am to get out sailing Among the boats I have owned: San Juan 21, San Juan 23, Holder 16, and Coronado 25.

I am looking for something super simple to rig and sail single-handed. I've done alot of ultra-light camping, so room for a sleeping bag and porta-pottie is all I need in a cabin. Under 1000 lbs and shoal draft are ideal since I spend most of my time in the ICW or coast hopping.

Tow weight isn't an issue, but I like being able to jump out and push my boat off the sandbar when I screw up I haven't figured out a way to search any of the online databases for sailboats with a cabin and weighing less than 1000 lbs though.

Thank You Very Much For Suggestions,
DJ

This is a scamp, the best very small pocket Cruiser I have seen. The cabin is really for storage, you sleep in the cockpit.



This is a CLC pocketship, pretty much the smallest I know of with room inside to sleep.

Both are available as kits, and do a good job of looking and acting like a real boat. I have seen the scamp in person and was impressed, I do not have personal experience with the pocketship, but it has been well recieved. I have built boats from CLC and am happy with the company.

Thank you very much! Living in FL, I'm not sure how likely it is that I travel to TX for a boat, but the site is great.

The CLC is interesting, but I have a hard time spending 3-4k plus a bunch of work for a boat when so many fiberglass boats are currently available at a much lower price...

Re: Looking For Very Tiny Pocket Cruiser - help?

I was mostly looking for ideas on production models. For example, Precision makes a nice little boat and if I could find one cheap in my area I would grab it in a heartbeat. But I would rather something more unique if possible...

Re: Looking For Very Tiny Pocket Cruiser - help?

West Wight Potters and Montgomery's probably have the biggest following among small boat enthusiasts. I think the Montgomery 15 is considered the best/smallest boat around. msog.org has a classified section.
