Preparing the Flying Scot to Leave:

    • Hook boat trailer up to golf cart (securely … i.e. check this!)
    • Remove boat cover and stow in shed (fold front to back)
    • Install drain plug, inspect rudder, mainsheet swivel, hull, rigging meat hooks and painter
    • Verify checklist items; anchor, life jackets, whistle, winch cranks, oars, boat hook, bailer
    • Install lifting harness (harness straddles the boom on both sides) – may already be on
    • Maneuver boat under dock lifting winch – align trailer to wheel guides on dock
    • Attach winch hook and lift to slightly tension the harness
    • Unhook bow attachment from trailer winch (return trailer after boat is in the water)
    • Lift and put boat into the water – crew helps guide/push boat gunwales, painter in hand
    • Move boat to end of pier using the painter and shroud – push shroud, don’t pull
    • Tie off at the end of the pier – remove and stow lifting harness forward
    • Free main sheet, jib sheets, centerboard pennant, tiller tie-down and slacken boom vang
    • Rudder down, centerboard halfway and loosen boom vang so boom can be lifted up
    • Hank jib luff to forestay, tack to deck shackle, route clew sheets aft – keep sheets free!
    • Free jib halyard, attach to jib head and raise the jib – tension halyard while raising
    • Lift boom, remove boom crutch and gently place boom on the deck (stow crutch aft)
    • Remove & stow mainsail-ties (4), unfurl mainsail to port - frees starboard winch access
    • Free mainsail halyard and attach to mainsail head (with turtle?) – decide about reefing
    • Raise mainsail – check for battens, outhaul, halyard & luff integrity – keep sheets free!
    • Adjust boom vang tension; loose for downwind and snug for upwind
    • Instruct crew on the cast off plan; i.e. initial point of sail and exit tacking strategy
    • Untie painter and push bow in the desired direction – as you step onto boat with painter
    • Trim sheets and boom vang tension. Set centerboard depth when in deeper water.
    • Always sit to windward unless otherwise directed. Have fun!
