1984 Flying Scot Long Island, New York.

I offer my Flying Scot for sale for $12,000.

The deal would include not only the boat and all its gear but the trailer, a fiberglass dinghy that I have used to get out to the boat, and preparation for launching by the boat yard.

New Scots cost about $30,000.

The Flying Scot is a fiberglass day sailer designed in 1957, and intended for a crew of 2 or 3, although I have usually sailed it single-handed.

It is 19í long, weighs about 800 pounds, has no extreme features, is unusually stable, and is quite comfortable to sail.

The boat has superb sailing qualities.

Despite its moderate design, it is unusually fast for its size and sails well in all conditions.

It is especially fast in light airs, when you need only 5 knots of breeze to go sailing.

Also so good downwind that Iíve never bought a spinnaker.

In 15 knots with a full crew she also planes easily.

The Flying Scot class, with about 5000 boats, is one of the largest one-design sailing classes in the country.

The boat is used for both day sailing and racing, and there are racing fleets active in many locations all around the country.

Built in 1984, my boat is #3976.

I bought it in 1999 and have since used it only for weekend day sailing off a beach in Huntington Bay, on the north shore of Long Island.

On these waters, I can usually outpace all other sailboats, except for catamarans.

Construction is robust.

I have encountered only minor maintenance problems, but these have been easy to fix because the Flying Scot company stands behind the class.

They can mail you parts quickly.

While my boat is generally in good condition, to race it competitively would require buying new sails and smoothing the bottom.

Aged almost 80, I am selling the boat mainly because it has become too much boat for me to handle single-handed.

I expect to get a smaller day sailer, and I continue to sail and race on larger boats.

I attach a recent photo of my boat on her mooring off my beach in Huntington.
