Boat Purchased

Well after much reading, researching, and looking at various boats, yesterday purchased a 1972 Flying Scot. The boat looks to be solid and in good condition with a road worthy trailer. Hull # 2084. Have scheduled an ASA 101 sailing class at local lake and looking forward to warmer weather

Really have enjoyed the process so far of researching the various opinions and think this will make a great boat for myself and 2 boys to do some learning on.

Congratulations on the sailboat, and welcome to the forums.
W.I.B. Crealock when asked what he thought of the easily trailerable Clipper Marine sailboats by a naval design collegue, Gentelman Bill responded, "I am very proud of them". &

Those are such great boats.

Hope you enjoy taking care of her as much as sailing her.
