Or perhaps the 29er. It is somewhat crude looking because it was
designed for mass production, but the price is right. I think they are
made all over the world, and sold as 49er trainers.
It wasn't intended for single-handing, but it probably could be done
with the main only and the trapeze.
A more old-fashioned boat, meant for single handing with trapeze, the
Contender shares its mainsail with the 505 and FD. I don't know how
easy they are to find. That does not have the jib and chute that the
others mentioned do, but is only meant for singel handing.
