Thanks Dave812 The handbook is packed with a lot of great info.

Thanks Dave812 The handbook is packed with a lot of great info. I never knew that book existed I'm glad you pointed it out for me. That's what I love about owning a Flying Scot It's popularity and the owners made owning Hull # 287 (YELLOW SUBMARINE)fun. The support is outstanding, I never realized what I was exactly getting when I began shopping for a Flying Scot. I did a little research and thought this type of sailboat would fit my sailing needs perfectly. The various websites all contribute a great deal to take out a lot of hassels of owning such a great boat.. I sail in Lake Pontchartrain near New Orleans and I love to sail at night with the moon and stars in the night sky, not to mention the city lights on the horizon are memorable. Again Thanks Dave

Your observations are 100% correct.

Your observations are 100% correct. When we brought our FS, these points were pointed out to us, and were a main reason we got our FS. We haven't been sorry! Of course this is a main reason we all enjoy such a high re-sale value. I am interested in your comments about sailing at night. I want to try it this summer, especially during a full moon. I know other FS fleets sail at night, but I haven't seen anyone sail at night at our little lake in Cibncinnati. Do you use lights, if so are they the flash light type held on with suction cups?

Sailing at Night in New Orleans is so beautiful and very Romanti

Sailing at Night in New Orleans is so beautiful and very Romantic. My first sailboat was a Ranger 22 and I got hooked on night sailing because it is a lot cooler at night because our summer days are really hot down here. I can't tell you how many times we got carried away with the romantic mood and left the tiller unattended to and went below. I do remember once missing a huge can Bouy by inches as we came up from below. Now I have a flying Scot and i really love it. Ofcourse it's not the same as a Ranger 22 with a long fixed keel. but FS is an exciting boat to sail and requires a lot more attention than my Ranger. On my Flying Scot I bought a couple LED lights that have suction cups but I used bungie cords to secure them and the LED lights will last a whole season on a couple c size batteries.. I don't have a mast head light but It really isn't required if you are just sailing. I remember before Katrina, New Orleans use to set off fire works along the Mississippi and can easily be seen from Lake Pontchartrain if you are about 4 miles off the shore line. The City seems to sit gracefully on the horizon with the shimmering moonlight waters and some of my most memorable moments with the girl I loved for so long. You should try it, you won't be disapointed, Your honey will have a surprise for you when you are out there caught in the mood. Go ahead howl at that moon. you will be at your best. Always keep an eye out for floating debris and crab traps, with a full moon you can see much better than starlight w/o a moon.. I also remember see a 30' telephone pole floating in the middle of the lake... Hitting the floats of the crab traps can scare you sometimes too.
