Lightning as a Family Daysailer?

The Lightning if it is fitted out to race as most of them are is not a very comfortable boat. All the good places to sit have hardware on them. The few times I''ve raced on them I''ve come home bruised. A better boat of the same size for family sailing would be the Flying Scott. Much better suited to your purpose.
