    I am interested in building a minicruiser trailerable with a Subaru Forester.
    My Dad had a Silhouette Mark 3 with fin keel. I like the size and performance but a fin keel is not launchable from a trailer. Joe Dobler's Q-17 is the right size and weight. I will be sailing it on the lower Columbia, Oregon coastal bays, and maybe Puget Sound. Does the design point well and sail in light airs?
