I looked up Duckchaser, and it looks pretty clever to me.

(that's 2400 x 325 x 150 to 25, weighing 11 kg.) The original ones were built to be tenders for a Jarcat J6 & are carried in one of the quarter berths. Most of the rest have been built as projects by 14 -18 year old Venturer Scouts
- This shows real diversity in folding boats. I especially admire the high quality aluminum Instaboat, but a trend seems to be toward plastic.
I looked also for a big daysailer seen long ago but could not find it. Otherwise this is pretty slick.
