Good question from a first-time Anarchist... Hey Everybody, first post and new to the SA forums.  In the market for a possible unicorn here and looking for input so I don't miss any great options. In short, is there a boat out there I can plane solo...and will daysail comfortably with 5 people? Looking for a trailer-able sporty keelboat (~18-24' range) I can manage setting up on my own yet will accommodate my family of five for some lake and coastal daysailing.  I started looking at the Melges 24 and J/70 by a friend's recommendation.  As far as I can tell, those boats can be single-handed for sure, but probably not without significant performance limitations (and probably not fun to rig alone). I've also looked at First/Seascape 18/24, just don't know much about them. I'm thinking the 18-20' range might let me get my kicks single-handing...however not sure how comfortable they are with 5 or 6 people on board. Thanks in advance for the input. Jump in the thread!...

The IBM-sponsored autonomous vessel prototype Mayflower has departed the UK, bound on a transatlantic voyage to Plymouth, Massachusetts. The AI-enabled, electric-powered vessel was developed by IBM with the non-profit ocean research organization ProMare and a partnership of scientific organizations. It was formally launched in Plymouth, England in September, and after conducting final outfitting and sea trials - and waiting out COVID-related delays and some bad weather - it is now underway. The Mayflower measures 15 meters in length and weighs five tons, and it has a top speed of 20 knots. It is equipped with a range of scientific instruments to take measurements during its long journey, covering everything from water chemistry to microplastic pollution to whale song. Read on....
