I owned a 1974 Flying Scot for 15 years. (Sold it two years ago and now have a Catalina 30.) I never had any hull or deck problems. I always stored the boat in a garage over the winter except for the last two years when I used canvas covers outdoors. The Flying Scot is a great daysailor and I taught both of my sons how to sail on her. The boat is stable and well-made and the cockpit room makes it great for just cruising around the lake with a cooler of beer and a couple of friends.
P.S. They are still being made (parts are readily available) and there is a very active owners group.
