What load must the boat carry?
Bolger's Birdwatcher1 fully rigged with 50 lb outboard etc at DWL could carry 700lbs, and quite a lot more at about say 300lbs per extra inch immersion with little effect on performance.
Time might affect the necessary load capacity too, and so... speed, and BW is longish and shoal...
Michalak's Robbsboat might take 500lbs and some 300 or so more... good visibility, safe-ish, big sail area.
Slider catamaran might be good for 600lbs.. What's faster, Slider or BW1?
