Another boat to consider is the Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 (or maybe the little sibling 4.6). Stable, unsinkable boat, slightly wetter than a Flying Scot but still pretty dry. As it is a little lighter and has a shorter mast it is a little bit easier to set up. Sails pretty well. No stern deck. Some have a removable cuddy in the bow. It is a bit easier to get up to the bow than the Flying Scot as even when the cuddy is installed there is still a vestige of the seat that gives you either a good place to brace a foot or a convenient place for kids to sit. It is a foam sandwich design and can literally be sawed in half and still float. Seats are not as comfortable as the Scot. And be aware, the cuddy keeps the spray off of items stored under it but the anchor locker drains into the cuddy so items on the floor get wet.
