extra boat flotation
I am new to the sport of sailing. My experience is limited to a class last summer and crewing with people at hoover sailing club while I was trying to deterime which type of boat to purchase. I have recently purchased a flying scot and hope to have it ready once the season begins. One of my main concerns at the moment is flotation. The boat I bought does not have the bow flotation bag nor the mainsail flotation. While I do not plan to capsize the boat, I do realize that my lack of experience could lead to this unfortunate result. Therefore my question is, should I add one or both of these additional floation devices to the boat? There are rescue boats at hoover during club races, however, I do want to tax these kind folks too much.
