    RRT, I'll try to get one for you. Most of my older pictures were on a computer that died. I sold it (the DINGY) to a neighbor for his son. I'll try to get a couple for you from him. No promises but will try. The picture you posted looks like mine. Could be they just measured differently. I'll see if he'll take a pic of the capacity plate also.

    Hi All:

    I have had an 8' Scout Sailing Dingy for awhile. The Rudder wood block on the rear back top of the dingy has started to rot away. Does anyone have an idea what type of wood (block) is used to hold the rudder in place? Is it a hardwood or what?
    The dimensions are 12" long X 6"wide X 1.25" (approximate) thick. Can you tell what year the boat is by the Serial number?

    I also just bought an Eli sailing dinghy "Scout Sailor" and really would like to get a copy of the original manual, or at least advice on sailing it. I'll be glad to pay for the manual.
