'60s Flying Dutchman - Should I buy?
I have an opportunity to buy a '60s Flying Dutchman racer. It's overall in pretty good shape. My question is how much skill do I need to have to sail it and can it be sailed once in a while single handed. I have medium sailing skills mainly with Hobies and small sailboats (under 17'). I frequently also sail alone since the kids are grown up. I love the look of the boat and I am very tempted but I would love some advice. Can the boat be de powered enough to sail single handed. I am a big guy at 230lbs so I am almost like two sailors, LOL. Thanks.
