I don't know if this is the sort of thing generally posted here, but I have an opportunity to buy a 1972 Customflex Flying Scot near me for $2500 in "fair" condition. It includes main and jib, anchors, and a trailer.
I'm keen on learning to sail (I've been a surfer for many years), and I've pretty much decided on a Flying Scot. I was wondering if anyone here could offer some insight into buying used, what to look for, etc. I've encountered a lot of information about soft hulls and rotted balsa, and issues with certain Customflex centerboard trunks.
I guess maybe I'm just asking for someone to weigh in. It seems like it could hardly be a bad purchase at that price, but then again I have no idea what I'm doing.
Apologies if I'm spamming your forum with this, I'm just trying to do my due diligence.
