It is a challenge for 2 people to carry but can barely be done. I have a little two wheel canoe cart I put mine on. The older ones are hand laid fiberglass (like mine) and are heavier than the later blown plastic/pvc type models, but both are fairly cumbersome when compared to a canoe or kayak.

Is this boat still available?

still here

Several people have PM'd me asking about the boat. I tried to respond, but this site requires 5 posts before PM. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all.

To answer a few of the questions: I'm located in central NJ. The boat is still available. I tried to fix the wheel this weekend: removed it, tied a rope around it to try to seat the bead, took it to a gas station to use their compressor. However, I could not get the bead to seat. The wheel is fairly new - I had to buy it to make the trailer road-ready when I acquired the boat. Due to the mast snafu, I have not used the boat since- so the wheel has only 20 miles or so on it!

There is a nice centerboard and the hull is quite sound. The finish has weathered a bit, but may come back with a little TLC.

I've experienced wind between light & variable up to about 12 knots. 12 knots is all but I can bear when it comes to making a jibe or running down wind with this craft.

Her beam is not to be desired from a sailboat stand point, just a bit too narrow (understandable for the multipurpose vessel she is). She also has a soft chine which is also only existent in the center of the hull. This makes her buoyancy "sweet spot" on a good lean quite narrow and a bit precarious.

Her sail is very large, very fast boat and loads of fun! Picture a Lazer sailing set up, that is very close to what she has. Windy days are a blast but lets say that I've had the "pucker factor" more than once and after a couple windy days, my wife now watches me from the shoreline.

The sculling package is great and my wife and I take the boat out at least 3 days a week in the warm seasons (about 35 times so far). Great craft for 2 people.

I don't want to scare you off with the sailing aspects, I'm accustomed to racing dinghy's (420s / FJs) and so I'm being critical when it comes to sailing hull design. She fairs well and I would highly recommend this for sailing in freshwater scenarios. The sail can be reefed (original design) newer ones have a mast which is a 3 piece and can be used with just 2 pieces for less performance but more stability.

She has lots of room and is very light. I'll attach some pictures later, got to go right now.

Cheers!
I'm going to look at one on Friday in St Pete Fl. I'm looking at it as a sailboat. I have 2 kayaks. Does this thing stay on its feet without 20 year old superman hikeing?? If it goes over does the cockpits stay dry??? Just want somthig to sail untill I can find a Compac Suncat.
