Re: Flying Scot - snapped boom
Luckily you are in the GYA, or at least pretty close. Try calling the Houston Yach Club and ask where they source their booms from. Breaking a boom on a Scot is so common we bring three to major regattas. We assume one will break, and carry the third as a spare. We even stock the chase boat with one of the backups just in case.
It is one of the known issues with the design.
