I have sailed a flying scott and very much enjoy those boats. I measured this one and it's just over 18 ft. I agree that it seems like it could be used for racing
. I love the open design and I think this boat will hold 4 comfortably. I'm going to post a picture of the sail soon to see if that will give any clues. It has a logo that I don't recognize.
Before I got the boat, it had been abandoned on a property and left uncovered for about two years. There was a foot of standing water
in it and everything was covered in algae. The sails
were thrown in the bottom of the boat under all the water
. Fortunately, the actual fiberglass
shell is still in tact and I was able to salvage
the front half of the boat. But the gunnels, which were made of wood, were rotten. I have taken out both gunnels and stripped it down to the fiberglass
. I have just sanded all the old epoxy
and I'm ready to start rebuilding. Once I do that, I'll be ready to start experimenting with fiberglass. I hope to be done sometime this summer. Anyway, I'll get a picture of a sail in a couple days.
