Might want to check the rating for the Flying Scot. US Sailing has 89.6 for the DPN (base) rating. Wish I could have made it.

In Topic: Contender Dinghy, what to look out for in an old hull

Kallenator, It looks like a great starter boat. As the others have stated that amount of pro-grip is normal and necessary. Sail it for a couple of years and it should serve you well. Sell it for what you bought it for and get a new stiff boat that will last you for ages.  Carbon spars will help a lot with the lower center of gravity.  You can get new spars and a sail then when your ready I am sure either Schappi or Bonezzi will sell you a new hull to move the rig over to.  Getting a complete new boat is fairly pricey.  Get up/past the learning curve and then upgrade as you progress.
