Hello, New Here
I just wanted to post a quick hello.
I am rescuing a Scot from laying dormant for about 20 years and will need a lot of assistance while I move along as I don't know 98% of the sailing/rigging terms for the boats and have never had to go through a sail boat like this.
I have sailed many, many times, but would still consider myself a novice at best.
The boat in question is one of two Scots my family has owned and raced since new; I have been told it is hull number 800 something, but can't seem to find the number anywhere on the boat. Where can I locate the number?
I do know it is a Douglass boat though since the plaque is still intact.
The boat itself isn't in too bad of shape, there are cracks in the gel coat that need to be repaired and it needs to be cleaned. One of the mast stays has snapped, but that is an easy fix. I will need/want to purchase all new rope (rigging?) for it though. Everything else is there, I even have two full sets of sails with one jib!
I look forward to returning an old joy of my late father's back to glory and thank everyone in advance for any and all help.
