very long, is also light and shallow and I wouldn't have thought
it would be too much of a bear to trailer or launch. Folding and
unfolding the FS sounds like a bit of a trial however.
Paul Day chose the FS because he has to take it bush bashing
to reach the only navigable water in Kalgoorlie, but for most of
us I would think the LS would be a lot easier.
Perhaps it is just the entertainment value of a boat that folds in half?

explaining to perplexed bystanders the
holes cut in the bow transom of my Micro.
Also, I have room to store a Folding
Schooner on my driveway, but a Light
Schooner would not fit.
From what I have read, the Folding
Schooner seems a bit less likely
to capsize than a Light Schooner.
Also, I am figuring, the Folding Schooner
would make a better 'camping platform'
than a Light Schooner.
