sailboard/kayak or sailboard/rowboat

Post by James M. Wel » Fri, 25 May 1990 21:51:48

My current fantasy is a high performance touring boat that can
be sailed like a sailboard and also paddled like a kayak or rowed
like a shell.  It is low maintenance (plastic).  It weighs about
60 lbs. maximum.  Sailing gear can be stored aboard when
paddling/rowing and paddling/rowing gear can be stored aboard
when sailing.  It can carry me (150 lbs.) and about 40 lbs.
of gear.

Does anyone know of any boat that comes close to this?
Phone numbers and addresses of sources would be much appreciated.

In the absence of an existing boat, a builder who would be interested
in the project would be the next best thing.

Thankyou for your help.
