weight of boat
I sail an old Scot(#690)which was an awful mess before I fixed it up. It seems a little slow. It's hard to tell because there aren't any other Scots on our lake, not really. It's probably me more than the boat, but in lightish air I have trouble keeping up with Windmills (PR 89.5). The sails are old, but I'm wondering part of the problem may be that the hull is a bit heavy. I'm taking it out of the water pretty soon and I'm thinking of weighing it. The specs all list the weight as 850 lbs. "all up". I don't know what that means. Does that just include hull and hardware or does it include the centerboard? ...the rudder? ...the mast and boom? Help!
