As for Scout 30, I'm still under wraps about the boat for fear of 'deal poachers.'
I can tell you, at age 10 I was sailing since I was age nine on a family
owned boat of wood and all our boats were wood, over 100 years old. We won races, and won races, and won races - had fun learned a lot about sea sickness
; and generally I longed to own a schooner.
Probably not much to worry about there. Schooners, at least in the Us, are not really hot commodities. In fact most of the schooners in Maine
are for sale
. Truly a shame. They are the most beautiful boats in the world.
