FS with a Cabin

Hi I rencenly discovered an old FS in the backyard of a Montreal sailing Club. It is a Flying Scott with a cabin ! Mostlikely from the mid-60 but could not see any identification numbers. Does anyone knows about this type of FS? Who was the builder? How many units have been made? Robert Montréal

It is probably a Mallard boat made by Customflex, which also mad

It is probably a Mallard boat made by Customflex, which also made Flying Scot's and other boats under license. I saw this boat on some vintage ads for sale on ebay. The Mallard was shown with a Flying Scot and a third boat I don't remember. There was a previous thread on the Forum a few months ago about the same thing. By the way, great web site and pictures on the complete restoration of your Scot. Google translator got me part of the picture descriptions. You should submit an article and pics to Scots 'n Water if you haven't done so. Your experience and description of your project would be great for anybody dong any part of a restoration or as a whole. Tom Thompson FS 4610 TomT

Hi Never heard about Mallard Boat and could not find anything

Hi Never heard about Mallard Boat and could not find anything on the www about this manufacturer. Of course we are back in the mid-60 ! Thank for you comments about my web site (www3.sympatico.ca/dompou) It's way too much work to write an article in english but I am always willing to share experience over the phone Robert

I believe an Interlake was the 3rd boat in the vintage Customfle

I believe an Interlake was the 3rd boat in the vintage Customflex ad along with the Mallard and Flying Scot. Customflex was located in Toledo, Ohio. I believe they went out of business or greatly restructured/downsized 20-30 years ago. The Interlake class website currently list Customflex as a builder of its boats and is located outside the Toledo area, www.interlakesailing.org. It may worth calling them to see if they have any history on the production of the Mallard. From what I remember of the looks of the Mallard, it was probably designed to compete against the O'Day Daysailer. TomT
