The Flying Scot is a 19'' daysailer and a nice boat. The Lightning is an older design, also 19'' and fairly similar. I learned to sail on Lightnings on the Chesapeake a long time ago. It will actually plane in a really good wind, crew is 3, but can be single-handed. Easily trailered. Has a spinnaker. I liked it. There have been something like 13-14,000 Lightnings made, so there are a bunch out there.
