I found this boat advertised as an Albacore on Craigslist but there was
obviously a mistake because the length was given as 13' 4" and Albacores are 15'.
I began some research and found it to be an early Flying
Junior built by Grampian of Canada. I almost bought the boat, but I had 11 small
boats in the yard, several awaiting restoration. I did inform the seller and
hope he found a new owner who would appreciate the boat. The FJ is the most popular
boat in college sailing today.
Some FJs (that is the
sail insignia) have a double hull but the Grampian had the single hull and was
lighter and thus faster. It is advisable to add flotation however!
