There have been several threads dealing with the Sail&Oar options, and I've followed them (and related builds and launches) with interest. I haven't, however, found a good answer to my question.
It seems that the Penobscot 14 is a well liked design.
I think I saw that the show last year a Daisy 15
this size seems like a good match for my current needs. My family doesn't fit in my solo canoe. A "normal" canoe would be a good craft for me, but right now having a second adult to wrangle a toddler is important - thus a row boat seems like a good match. Smaller (like into the well-populated 12 foot range) seems to limit the craft to two adults (sailing) or three (rowing).
I would envision rowing more initially, then wanting to sail after the toddler grows up and wants more adventure.
So, the question are: how do the two listed designs compare? Which other obvious designs did I miss?
