Want to buy a trailer sailer but don't want to spend all day at the dock...

If you have a trailer sailer and you think you can rig it fast, then please tell about it! Just include what boat you have, how long it takes to rig, and any modifications you have done to expedite the process.

The rigging time should be total approximate time from arrival at the dock to ready to sail (assuming no waiting at the ramp).

Thanks!

Melonseed skiff, or Chamberlain Dory Skiff. Both have sprit rigs, the Melonseed is cat rigged, the Dory is a yawl with balance jib. I can get underway in the 'seed in about ten minutes: unroll the sail, insert the sprit and boom, attach the sheet, off we go. The yawl takes longer, but not much, because all three sails have the same procedure. Traditional rigs without stays are quick to set up. They're also fun, and not slow.
