The above URs willhelp get you started.
As regards the bilge boards - when beating or reaching, the windward board is ''up'' and the leeward board is ''down''. This may seem like a hassle at first but you''ll soon find it to be ''routine''. The only real difference in sailing a scow versus other sailboats is that a scow is ''designed'' to sail at large angles of heel .... 25 degrees over is ''normal''.
