Hi, Help me please !
Is there such a one-person boat ?
Under 11 or even 10 feet long
Hull under 50 lbs
Width under 3 feet
Sail under 30 sq. ft.
Need not be as fast a Laser, but should be able to keep up for a short while in relatively calm weather.
The boat should let me stay dry in street clothes and not getting me cold, when under sail in shallow water near shore, with one hand holding the sheet and the other holding a camcorder for wild life filming.
The boat needs to be able to cross a one-kilometer open water (where big boats are passing) in 20 minutes in cross wind.
In other words I am hoping there is such a light weight, fast sail boat that a small person like me can handle it it alone (with a small car), and launch it anywhere.
Is this a reasonable expectation ? Your comment please !

I received this email earlier this week. I am scratching my head as to how to help this guy. Does the boat he is searching for exist? Can anyone help him?
