I also have a Flying Fish. I have the original owners manual and bill of sale came with the boat. Picked it up for free guy was going to saw it up and throw it away. I had to glue the sail track back on the mast and clean it up a bit. Great boat very stable and the boom is over your head...
Well finally got to sailing the fish this past weekend and man it is fun. Stable as a rock and lots of room for two to sail. Jumped up on a plane with two aboard in about 15mph of wind. I was going to sell it but I am changing my mind may keep it around for the summer.
Hi, Got this home the other day the guy I got it from was going to chop it up. Have to step the mast and run the sail up yet hopefully it won't be full of holes. Otherwise it appears to be all there and in usable condition.
Well I picked up the Flying Fish today. It is white with a green deck pretty rough but seems complete. It does have a long whippy fiber glass mast. Got a old rusty trailer too that despite all the rust seems pretty solid and quite heavy. I will shoot some pictures tomorrow when I get to...

Thanks again for the help,
