I'm looking for something with a little performance, tow at or under 500 pounds, and I really want a mizzen...IMO one of Jim Michalak's designs may best suit your desires. He is heavily influenced by Bolger, and designs very simple and, therefore, light boats. Many of his designs include a mizzen. He is noted for being responsive to builder requests and would likely place a mizzen rig on one of his designs for a very reasonable cost. Duckworks has many of his designs available for sale, though not all.
At least one is pretty much a water ballasted, lee board Micro. Others are close to Martha Jane.
I’m aware of the Michalak designs. Having built a June Bug, a Micro, a Brick/Duck, and a Shoebox I want to make something nicer. I’m working my way towards having time available to do that.
