Flying Scot

Personally I chose the Flying Scot.

I don't think you could go wrong with either (or a Thistle).
I have never sailed a Lightning but watch them at my club.
The Flying Scot is a simpler boat. ...

Provisional patent

Paul,

In order to discuss this with people while protecting your rights, I suggest that you begin the work to patent the idea.

The most basic form of protection is a bound notebook where you...

Flying Scot

I am not familiar with your area so my comments should be filtered accordingly.

The Flying Scot is a great boat. $11k sounds high for the boat you are describing. You should be able to pick up...

Lots of small boats

Being one of the small boat sailors hanging out here I will just drop a few names of boats in your direction.

non-gel coat

No, this is not a gel coat nor a laminate issue. The Hunter 170 is truly a plastic boat, not a fibreglass boat. Read the description from Hunter (http://www.huntermarine.com/ACP/ACPIndex.html)....

Yes

Give it a try. Even try it on your boat. Best method is to find a friendly soul to take you out during a race. Listen to their tips. Hopefully have a good time. If not, try again on a different...

What's your goal?

What boat to get depends on your goals. I don't know anything about the Rhodes. The Buccaneer is an interesting beast as others around here will tell you. Fun to sail, lots of power, a wee bit...

Why bother?

If you are a trailer sailor, why bother with any bottom paint? Common logic I have heard is that if you are spending the majority of your time on a trailer, you don't need anti-fouling paint. Even...

I was really tempted to buy a Bucc when I was looking. If you are going sailing with a buddy and you both know how to swim, I don't see any problems. I backed off due to having two young kids.

too many to choose from

Based on the criteria given so far I think the list could include any number of boats from the Capri 14.2 on up. Personally I prefer dinghy's over keel boats (more action, less sitting) but you can...

Flying Scot

Take a look at the Flying Scot. Probably a little more tender than a fixed keel Capri 18, but from reports I have had less tender than the CB Capri's . The Scot is incredibly well mannered, yes, it...

There are many good boats in that size. The Scot is obviously one that you are familiar with (and you may be able to find a used one in your price range but not easy). The biggest problem is going...
