What's your goal?

What boat to get depends on your goals. I don't know anything about the Rhodes. The Buccaneer is an interesting beast as others around here will tell you. Fun to sail, lots of power, a wee bit tippy, and varying build quality. The Flying Scot is a great boat, quite a bit more conservative than the Bucc. Comfortable, stable, not a light air boat. I find it is good for the family and has an active class with friendly sailors. For me it is a good mix of a family day sailor and a friendly racing boat. A blast to sail when there is wind. Not so much fun when it is sunny, 90+ degrees, and the wind dies. Scots are being built by the reputable, long-term builder. There was a second builder back in the 70's who had varying build quality over the years.
