Flying Scot - snapped boom

Hello all,

I managed to snap the boom of my 1977 Flying Scot. Not sure what to do at this point. I'm new to the world of sailing.

How does one go about ordering a replacement?

I've attached some pics.

Thanks!

I found this website; perhaps it will have what you're looking for: The Flying Scot - The Best Daysailer in the World - look for the link to the online store.

Good luck!

Also check the Flying Scot Sailing Association Flying Scot Sailing Association. In the "caveat emptor" section they have use booms for sale. If the boom comes from afar, shipping will be a big part of the cost. Unfortunately I don't know Dallas resources but if you dig in the South west district section of the Flying Scot Sailing Association you'll come up with an email contact for the FS fleet captain at Corinthian Sailing Club in Dallas, a likely source of information.

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.
