Answered my own question by purchasing
a 8'6" Porta Bote. Used the staysail halyard to lift
the whole thing up to where it leaned against the mast
. Although I would definitely recommend this as a two person operation, it is do-able in wind conditions up to about 10 knots. I foresee some entertainment value for those others at anchorage as this wrestling match occurs in the putting together and taking apart modes. We carefully chose a location where there were no spectators for our first several efforts; but managed to get it in the water
within 10 minutes. We love the dinghy
and so far we are sticking with oars only. The little thing tracks very much better than inflatables!
