I wondered that or the mythical Flying 12 but didn't convince myself...?

Is an FJ, but not 14 feet. Holes in transom will be original.

I don't think the mythical Flying 12 is mythical at all, but it's nothing like this, being a smaller Flying Fifteen I believe.

Looks like one of the Essex Schools Sailing FJs from back in the late 70s - awesome boats to sail as a teenager (far racier than my own Mirror!) - I loved them. Sadly they sat in a field in Langham (not too far from Haverhill) from the mid-eighties. I often wondered what happened to them.

I'm pretty sure it's an Fj. (13' 3" loa.)

There used to be one at Maylandsea Bay Y.C. Which was sailed by the son of an FD sailor.
