I see rigged boats transported all the time, all boats, and all cars. Are you sure it would not fit, rigged? I transport 3 rigged boats at once in an outback, and a bigger boat would fit in a Tesla....

Look into Flysky radio. They are cheap and effective. All boats use the same stuff. Check AMYA and local clubs listed there.

It looks like the sails are junk, homemade, without regard to proper sail shape. I would replace those, and the mast seems too short, also. The hull looks great. Carr Sails would help you.

Joysway DF65 Rigs

When short of space, you can break the boat down and re-rig again at the lake. If it is set up for this, it doesn't take too long.
