Re: 70's era lightning hull
I owned a Lightning for a few seasons - great boat.
If it gets swamped it CAN sink as the center board can weigh as much as 500 #s. Flotation can be added around the perimeter of the boat (gunwales?) in the form of empty plastic gallon containers or foam.
Your best bet is to learn not to capsize it and carry, or better yet, wear PFDs while sailing it.
