Does anyone know the size cubic inches or dimensions of the bow bag one needs to be class legal to race?
I have one from another boat not a Scot but I'm not sure it's b I genough
Here's the handbook text:
In addition, effective January 1, 2009, the boat shall include a nominal 4.8 cubic feet of buoyancy to facilitate the rescue of a swamped boat. This buoyancy shall be composed of a choice of an air bag, rigid non- communicating air cell foam plastics or air tanks and shall be attached inside the hull at the bow as low and far forward as possible to provide a nominal 300 pounds of buoyancy when submerged in water. It shall be securely fastened so as not to become dislodged when submerged. (November 2007) (See also CMR #29 & 79)
