While your stuffing silver into your mattress,  you should sail in the infamous OPB class yacht. (most anarchist do)

 

  very affordable.

  Windsurfing is cancelled...

 

  your best Knt/$ is going to be a kite!

 

  you could hook used gear on ebay and be on the water for $500 US.

 

  nothing goes faster, and you can put it all in a midsize trunk and go where ever you want.

yep,

 

 We had the old "one lunger" in our ten when we bought it.

 

 since re powered.

 

  the 9hp was the min weight for class rules at 175 lbs. so that was a plus.

also hand cranked it many times,  which is another plus.

 

  it would bang your fillings out and we could only push 4kts into a breeze and sloopy sea. (hull speed just over 6)

 

   I believe the motor was designed for roadside construction lighting generators,  and everything is ball bearing sleeved.

 someone once told me it would run without oil.

 

  have fun...
