  • FS - 2080

    Scot,Hull Number 2080, Douglas built 1979.  

    Excellent condition, hull and bottom restored in 2016

    Grey hull with purple boot stripe, white deck and seats, grey bottom 

    Teak centerboard cap original.

    Long trailer w/ nosewheel/jack winch with strap.

    Swim ladder

    Jib sheet ratchet blocks w/ jam cleats

    Bow buoyancy bag


    Two sets of sails:

    One set – main and jib – crap sails but good for just day sailing

    Full race set of Mad Sails.  Main and Jib use in approx. 6 regattas.  New spinnaker used in three.

    Race Rigged

    (2) Spinnaker pole

    Mooring cover, grey

    Carbon Fiber Tiller extension

    Lots of extra parts

    I bought this boat in 2016 and had a significant restoration done on the hull and bottom.  I had all intentions of campaigning the boat, but I also own and campaign an MC Scow.  Regular, good crew is hard to find and the SE circuit for the Flying Scot fall on the same weekends as the MC Scow regattas.  The MC is my first love, so therefore I am selling the FS.  It’s a great boat and I will miss her, but she will make someone very happy, whether just for day sailing or for winning regattas.   

    Photos available.     $8,000 Located Flowery Branch, GA I will meet you half way, up to 6 hours.  Better yet, come sail your new boat in our large open regatta in May.

  • Flying Scot Douglas Built 1979 #3430. White above yellow hull. Well Maintained. Renovated Trailer. Carefully cared for.

    For Sale Flying Scot Douglas Built 1979  #3430.             James Titus    Asheville, North Carolina

    Hull number GDB020880979   $4,500

    I have owned this boat for the last seven years and fresh water sailed in and around Asheville NC.  The previous owner as good old Charlie Buckner who raced her for many years in the Carolina Sailing Club. 

    The boat has original gelcoat yellow hull with white painted topsides.  The boat is fully race rigged with:

    • Rear led spinnaker sheets exiting at seats
    • Spinnaker halyard takeup reel aft
    • New Spinnaker ring on mast
    • New Jib track cars with standup blocks
    • 2x1 jib sheets
    • Outhaul 6:1 internal
    • Cunningham 6:1
    • Vang 12-1 below the forward deck, cleated aft
    • Standing rigging replaced in 2017.
    • Below foredeck turnbuckle replaced 2018
    • Mast rake set at 28’ 5” with correct tension at shrouds.
    • Mast split rings replaced 2017
    • All Mahogany refinished in 2017
    • Tiller refinished with 5 coats 2018
    • Rudder pin sleeved in brass tube for like new tight fit
    • Centerboard faired and polished to 1200 grit 2018
    • Centerboard pennant upgraded to non-stretch line vs older stainless cable
    • Bow bag in good shape
    • Stern boarding ladder


    Sails are Schurr with loose rig jib in good condition.  Batten pockets have been recently reinforced as well. 

    Trailer is long steel trailer that has been completely renovated:

    • Stainless Steel fasteners. 
    • New brackets,
    • new bunks, new rollers. 
    • All new LED submersible lighting. 
    • New winch strap and hook. 
    • Winch recently replaced
    • Reinforced
    • Repainted. 
    • Includes new spare tire 2017.

    Cover is over-boom cockpit cover by Sailor’s Tailor 2016  All bungee for hooks replaced 2018

    Caveat Emptor:  Let the buyer beware:Here are some things that are not what you would expect on a $10,000 Flying Scot, which this is not:  The boat was raced quite a bit before I got it, and had been in two non-structural “T-Bone” collisions on the water, both showing on the starboard bow rail.  These have been repaired, but you can still see them.   The topside has numerous fine spider cracks, but these look like superficial blemishes and do not appear to be structural.    The hull has some fine spider cracks and those in the front 1/3 portion have been filled and buffed with 800 grit.  There was some previous rubbing of the keel that was repaired with new Gelcoat. Hull passes my tapping test.  The gasket is whole, but could use to be replaced as it is 10 years old now.  The stern was punctured by the boom crutch two years ago.  A small section of the balsa core was replaced.  All balsa of the hull was checked and found to be “bone dry”  Repair was epoxy covered with gelcoat. 

    North Carolina Titles for Boat and Trailer ready for transfer to new owner.
