That's cute but looks wet.  Ok for kids!

We are retired sailors and started with a sunfish long ago.

Me to!   ;D   Had a 26 footer but sold it years ago since I never had time to sail it.   :(
 
But a Penobscot 14 is on my list of future projects!   ;)

I always liked those Catalinas!   ;D
 
I had a trailer for mine also but never used it... the boat stayed in a slip at Lake Lanier.  Paying for that slip was like throwing money in the water every month.   :-\
 
That's why my next one, whether a Penobscot or a little stitch and glue pram, will fit in my garage! ;)

Have a look at a West Wight Potter( this is the correct spelling) they are built in CA . THeir 14 footer might just be the ticket.
