New owner having maintenance questions

Hello,

I am a french guy living in Idaho who bought a FS last spring and had a blast on the lakes around here.

I have stored the boat in my garage and is in good overall condition except for the wood. I d like to take care of it before spring/summer roles in. Also, there are some wood handles on the back deck that are in bad shape that i d like to replace as well.

Here is the main problem: my english jargon of sailing is limited and i have to learn the correct words. Any help in description so I know what you might be referring to might be useful ;-)

Anyway, any advise on taking care of the inner wood parts?

Thanks

Edo

Hi Edo,

I believe the only factory wood items on a Flying Scot are the tabernacle (structure under the mast) centerboard cap, centerboard drum, the tiller, and various risers under blocks. I do not know anything about wood handles on the rear deck. I am guessing that these handles were added by the previous owner.

Here is a link that references other links for refinishing wood. http://fssa.com/fsforum2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=377&SearchTerms=Wood

Here is a link to a previous post that may help you with some FS terms. http://fssa.com/fsforum2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=395

Also call the folks at Flying Scot Inc - they are very helpful.
