Swift # 47

We have letters from the present owner and from the original owner of Swift. The past owner has included some classic pictures of Swift. Interestingly, Swift is the first L-36 I was ever on. Probably late 1960's in Catalina

Here is the letter from the daughter of the first owners:

I am the new owner of # 47 Swift and thought you might want to update the roster. I'll get you an image in the coming weeks.

She is beautiful, it seems as though she was well fitted at building. She is good shape and will have new wood scarfed into her mast near the step (masthead leak) and new keelbolts. I restore boats for a living and I will be living aboard so Swift will have a long life.

The deck, toerails off and the house are the first projects. I am going to strip the house and probably spline the splits and go bright. She needs more varnish and I am a masochist plus I have two kids, Sand age 13 and Varnish age 11.

I am joking about their names... Ian and Julia are their true names

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
