Location: Croatia On a Wayfarer you can stand on the gunwhale and it won't tip over. I have to agree with Bistros - don't look at anything less than 14ft if you want enough space to take you both in comfort. Actually PDRacer was one of the first pages I researched, and thought it is more of a boat than a Kayak, so headed away to find Kayak designs!

You will like these pics I got today (yes TODAY) from the philippines where a couple have been built. If I was an advertising type I might suggest that this was a common risk for all PDRacer owners. The Goat Island Skiff and the 14' Raid boat look like great candidates - big enough to comfortable fit two. Although you want a boat that basically can't capsize, you have to plan for the worst and assume it could happen. Location: Alliston, Ontario, Canada Matoi, I will take great care to ensure the missus doesn't see THAT site until after she has enjoyed a relaxed, leisurely trip around a really small lake! Bistros: hauling the wet missus into anything afloat is definitely not in the plan, but I was thinking of having a boarding ladder so she could climb back over the transom, while I jeer from midships or perhaps something more appropriate.
Location: Eustis, FL They're not that young, you're just old enough to think they are. Location: Alliston, Ontario, Canada Par, the RYD-8.4 looks very suited for my purpose, what does it weigh? As an aside, I notice that, on many Gunter rigs, the boom and gaff are similar in length, and I would assume in section too. Location: Eustis, FL Less then 100 pounds with full exterior 'glass sheathing and rig.
I'd say there are quite a few candidates among the designs of Paul Fisher (Selway-Fisher) and Gavin Atkins. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Location: france,europe Muscadet and Serpentaire are older design that would not pass current minitransat safety rules. Another one was making passages with a centerboard Serpentaire-dériveur, he seemed a bit afraid when we talked about stability. Now, current mini transat have increased stability requirement, increased downflooding angle requirement, increased re righting requirement, increased man over board prevention, increased inverted survivability, increased flooded survivability.
Increased downflooding angle requirements are a good thing, but on little boats like that it doesn't mean much. I see that the trailerable mini in your pictures always finish in the last position in races, and races are what they are built for.
I understand that you still need a crane to handle the keel, fix it to the hull and again the lifting crane to launch the boat.

So once again - but with some people you have to repeat yourself - a true trailerable sailboat is more something like a DAY CRUISING, lighter boat, no need for a lifting crane.
Day cruising or a coastal program with beaching capabilities, that seems the kind of boats among which someone would try to select a trailerable boat, as seaworthy as possible.

And if your better half still feels unsafe, you can install a steel centerplate making it even more stable.

I don't know much about the Raider, it seems a hair heavier but less beamy, perhaps that is due to the self-bailing feature. These guys are throwing so much good stuff at me that I will have to go through a major exercise just making up my mind which boat to build.
DragonFly is 16', fractionally rigged Bermudian and fast, though fairly stable as far as performance dinghies go.

I managed to capsize my W before I learnt how to gybe properly, and my girlfriend did become less enthusiastic about sailing in a dinghy. They are both light, obviously easy to build, probably easy to cartop, and they'll certainly have the legs of the PDR.
Sounds like the sort of feature a cheap ready made boat might have, and reduces the on-board clutter. Lightly loaded and hiking out, you can get some performance out of her, but she's really just a tender, but a stable and easy to build one. My boats usually end up lighter than average, I know where I can skim off the odd pound or two. I'm thinking that a 15 ft boat is going to need 2 to cartop, whereas I can easily manage the PDR on my own.
I've been working on a new 15' boat that's cool looking and if you can hold her down, very fast. My son has no interest in boats at all, on the other hand, my daughter can be talked into anything!
