    Hi, I am just new to the forum and trying to find out some information.
    my boat knowledge is very basic having only previously owned a 12' traditional trout (loch style) fishing boat.

    I want to buy another such boat but my wife and I also fancy sailing on our local water located in the English lake district.
    I dont have room for 2 boats so wondered if there was a craft available around 12' in length with sails and mast that can be removed to act as a traditional loch fishing rowing boat.

    A Drascombe Dabber or Scaffie come to mind, though I think they are both larger than 12'........
