general boat configuration info
I bought a 1983 scot and it has an access port in the transom on the port side. I have seen that this aids in recovery but how? I thougt it would be good to have to put the drain plug in but that goes on the outside. I also noticed the floatation under the seat was glassed in. Is this a good thing or a bad thing. I plan to sail the boat this year, and remove the fading bottom paint and reseat the hardware over the winter. It also needs a new centerboard gasket and some running rigging. I am most curious about the hull items (glassed floatation and transom access port). The rest is all strighforward.
