    Starting Research for Boat Choice

    A little old school is a an O'Day Daysailer. Lots around, easy to single hand, sits well on a mooring, easily holds 4 adults but can still be single handed and easily set up if you get one with a tabenackle step. Not high performance but decent performance. https://www.daysailer.org/

    Phrf rating for a non standard boat

    In my case I converted from a symmetric spin to an asymmetric spin because I went from sailing on a river with no waves to sailing on an ocean with sometimes big waves. the Asym with a fixed sprit allowed me to keep the same sail area but not to have to put someone on the bow, usually my son, in heavier conditions. PHRF-NE did give me a 3 sec/mile hit which is, in my opinion, within the tolerance band of any rating. I am probably slightly slower with the asym but much safer.

    Is Trailer Sailing Dying

    Not so much, I used to have one but I paid a lot more for it ($200). the retractable keel has sort of a bulb on the bottom, it looks a lot like a swinging 110 keel. the retraction line is attached to the bulb and there isn't a way to remove it without swimming. the bulb retracts into a hole in the cockpit which tends to fill the cockpit with water when moving forward. It's not a bad little boat, but its not an undiscovered speedster.
