Looking at buying a Scot
I am currently looking at buying a used Scot. I have seen a number of old scot's in the 1500 series numbers for sale in a various places.
Are these boats competative w the new boats or can they be w/o too much money? What are some of the things to look out for?
Seems like w some of these old boats that you can pick up, by the time you add $2200 in sails, $1000 in various rigging and lines you would have been better off getting a newer boat that has been raced. I know about the balsa floor issue. When it goes bad, is it something that can be put off for a while or does it become a must fix?
I have 3 young boys. I am looking for something I can introduce them to racing with. The Scot seems like a good fit.
At this point I am just looking, doing my research.
Would appreciate any info.
