I will be blogging regularly about this year’s refurbishment of Flying Scot 338. Last weekend I removed all of the hardware including rub rails. This weekend I removed the centerboard (with the help of the club hoist). Launched the 338 onto dry land – a very unnaturally feeling. And, with the help of 3 club members, flipped the hull onto low sawhorses. Next up, cutting the bad balsa out of the aft deck and removing the bottom paint. I feel itchy already.
Take a look at that centerboard. I got a chance to give it a close inspection while we were…uh…sideways a few weeks ago. I think I see why light air has never been kind to us!
