The Ultimate Sailboat
After thinking about this for a long time, I'm beginning to believe my ultimate boat is a trimaran. I think a multi hull design is a great way to get outstanding performance out of a shallow draft boat. The L7 design has an awful lot to offer, and for a new boat kit it is very reasonably priced. I was just hoping for a little more room below. With some minor tweeking, I think this design would be perfect for my needs. It is very trailerable, outstanding performer, easily single handed, all of the sails furl, easy and fast setup/teardown, And is a dry ride. All it needs is a bit more space below - a double bunk, an enclosed head, and a little table and we would have a winner!
I really like the idea of the easy folding amas. Fitting the boat in an average slip is an obvious plus! Now, I just have to figure out a way to make one for the price of a used Laser 28 ;)
