You can use fold in this case. So it could be
something like this:

template< typename Sequence, typename T >
struct find_convertible : fold< Sequence, void_, if_<
is_void_< _1 >, is_convertible< T, _2 >, _1 > {};

is_convertible shall return void_ in case it cannot
convert for this to work (you can use different type,
but need to change initial value and if statement

I made a suggestion to make such algorithm available
in the lib. But it is possible it can be simply
implemented through already existing algorithms.
