Re: Sailboat that can be beached???
a. Try a forum where people sail beach boats. Google "trailer sailor forum."
b. You need a kick-up rudder.
c. The business about rigging while afloat is nonsense. There are many beach launched boats that tolerate rigging on the sand.
d. Reconsider a small cat or a Laser. They are popular for good reasons.
e. Hang around beaches where people surf launch. See what they've got.
I used a to beach launch a Prindle 18 back when I was 150 pounds. Piece of cake with good fat wheels and good tech. Raising the mast was to only challenge (I built a winch for that).
