Ah, my kind of sailor. Well, I only get so many days a year, so I suspect the cheap trailer will work. I'll keep ya posted if I buy the small boat and trailer.

I'm a cheapskate, but also a lazy SOB. Decisions, decisions. If I buy the small boat, I think I will get the cheap trailer.

In my area I don't see small boat trailers in good shape very often on craigslist. That is usually the weak link in a boat purchase! I have presently an EZ Loader Sprint trailer under my FJ...

The article was a bit old with the pricing. The boat I think retailed for close to $2800 last year. This boat is basically brand new, and although not a bargain, I think is probably a good value. ...

Small boat trailer

I was under the impression that small boat trailers ran in the neighborhood of about $800 or so. But I found this trailer as recommended by a dealer I have corresponded with:

No, I didn't explain myself. I can get the boat with all the stuff for $1800. I can get a trailer for under $400. Not as good a deal! But, still a good deal for a brand new boat with all the...

Well, you got me. I might be too old for it at this point given what I want to do with it. On the laser class website they have a whole bunch of different classes, including an over 65 group...

Just spoke to a local sail maker. He felt that despite my weight, given my age, that I might do better with a Laser Radial. These are apparently the same boat, but with a shorter mast and smaller...

Laser for me?

OK, starting a new thread. I have an earlier post about a Force 5. I am looking for a small boat to play in and sail. I am 48, and weigh 170 pounds. I currently sail an FJ, but I am going to sell...

Yes. That is my impression. The boat I looked at is overpriced, and needs some work. Thanks for the link. I wasn't looking at a laser, but I would consider a laser.

Force 5

OK, I looked at the boat today at the only local sailboat shop here in Sonoma County. The owners are very nice. The boat has been sitting there for years, and shows it. They want $1500 for it with...

The Laser Pico or Vanguard Zuma would truly meet my needs. Trouble is, I never see one of these for sale used in my area. So I would have to buy a new one. The Pico would be about $4000 with a...

Very useful information. How would you say this boat compares to say, a Zuma or a Hobie Holder 12? Or a Pico? The only thing I don't like about the boats that use a sleeve sail is that it is sure...

Yeah, but I really want to avoid that. I plan to single hand it, and lifting a 145 pound boat onto the top of my Honda just won't work for me! :)

So, a trailer is a must. Doesn't have to be...

What I read about the Force 5 is that the older ones leak at the autobailer spot. There is a double hull there, and for some reason they were not sealed that well in the hull with epoxy. The Force...

Well, if the basics of the boat are good, I don't mind replacing lines and blocks as needed. But if the hull has problems, I don't know how to do fiberglass work at all.
