Robert Hynen is the proud proud owner of FS6181 . In May 2019 he and his wife Christine were at the factory, met Carrie and Tyler Andrews, sailed on Deep Creek Lake and ordered a new Flying Scot. After quite the journey. the boat arrived in Sydney, Australia. in early October 2019. Yes, that's right AUSTRALIA. Robert has since written a book about his first year of Flying Scot adventures. You'll see excerpts from tthe book in the next Scots n' Water magazine. And soon we will be making the book available to FSSA members. So very cool!
