    Default Sailing class ID by logo?

    Hey all, I bought this 60ish sq ft sail a year ago on CL for $50 with mast, boom, crap halyard, a daggerboard, and a rudder. Sadly the schmoe that was selling it didn't know what the boat was that it came off of, and the hull was gone, so I'm hoping the many voices here might recognize it.



    Thanks

    Based on the logo in Royce's it's a Sea Scouter.

    What is Royce's? Is it on-line or do I have to buy something?

    I learned to sail with that little tome back in the '60s. I believe it's still in print - maybe online.

    Thanks guys!

    Nice work ChrisBen. I couldn't find an image of one anywhere. Wish I could get more info on the boat itself (LOA, beam, etc).

    Planning on planting that rig in a SummerBreeze, which should scoot along well.

    Not much info about it out there other than 10' dinghy. Here's some other stuff I found.

    Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Sea Scooter sailing dinghy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Sea Scooter is a fiberglass 10 foot sailing dinghy created in the 1960’s by Aubrey Wayne "Monty" Morton. It was created by Mr. Morton to support his activities in support of the Sea Scouts by founding the nonprofit organization, Youth Adventure, for which was built more than 3,200 Sea Scooter sailboats. These boats were produced by Puget Boat Manufacturing in Seattle WA.[1]. The Sea Scooter is rigged with a single unstayed mast as a “cat-boat” with a loose-footed mainsail of 60 sq. ft. There was also an optional jib available of 25 sq. ft. The hull was equipped for sailing with a dagger board and a transom mounted rudder. The hull shape is characterized by a spoon bow and a smooth hull form with a full length skeg and small amount of tumblehome at the transom. A small outboard motor could be mounted at the transom although the hull was not necessarily designed for this.

    One for sale here with pics.

    I learned to sail from "Sail in a Day" by George O'Day. That was only a few years ago. All I want is a printed reference that identifies the multitude of sail logos.

    Default Re: Sailing class ID by logo?: Seattle Sea Scooter

    For anyone else who might come across this thread while looking for information on the Monty Morton's Seattle Sea Scooter dinghy, I've created a Yahoo! group where I am sharing everything I've accumulated about this little boat. I hope others will join too to share their ideas and knowledge.

    The link to the group is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sea_scooter/

    I re incarnated a Sea Scouter ?Scooter for a friend a few years ago . He was a bit too big for his Toro, The SS is a better boat for him.
