MC Scow Fleet 54

The 16-ft. MC Scow is a flat bottomed-boat that is usually single-handed and but can accommodate a second crew member. The MC Scow has a single sail, and instead of a centerboard, it has two bilge boards that extend outward at a slight angle, which significantly increases stability and pointing capability. The shape of the hull, combined with a large sail plan, makes for a fast and stable ride. Despite being only 16′ long, the MC Scow can keep pace with many of the larger racing boats.
