    My favourite new "toy" is the new torch set up in my shop... and it is a toy that will eventually pay for itself.

    They have crossed oceans, and circumnavigated. While 27 feet is a small boat, it is a very good size for single handing. This particular boat is very robust. Small portholes and good design overall.

    Here, read about Tania Aebi, who sailed around the world in a 26 foot sail boat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tania_Aebi

    How far is the walk? A laser or sunfish could be walked a short distance on a dolly, but probably not miles.

    There are quite a few options for dollies or trailers for sunfish. You might even be able to fabricate one you could pull behind a bike.

    The steel container is perhaps the biggest threat.

    Actually... you both need to do a bit of research before you comment.

    I used to keep a small beach cat at a waterside camping resort... The location required that I move the boat about 300 yards to the water. Here folks also have boats right on the sand, they only need to move the boat about 25-50 feet to get into the water. You could easily ride a bike to the boat, then launch and go.

    My boat is in a slip... I can ride a bike to the boat, put the bike on the boat, and then go. In fact my idea of a "perfect day" is to go out for a half mile swim in the ocean, ride my bike to my boat, then sail the afternoon away.

    My Fantom Cross Uno isn't so much a toy, as it gets me to work and runs an ever-increasing amount of errands. But it is a lot of fun.

    Tell ya what... look at price per mpg on ANY car on the road and get back to me on "value". And NONE of the cars that even come close have the fun "go-kart" feel.
