Is there a Hardin Seawolf 40 Owners Group

Does anyone know of a Hardin Seawolf Owner's group? Google is failing me today.

I'm not an owner but I might look at one and wanted to see if there was an owner's site with good info.

Thanks,
-patrick

Patrick,

Check out this group on yahoo at: Formosa41 : Formosa41

I am a member of that group and they have a lot to share. The description is:

"A place for Formosa, Ct, Mariner, Island Trader, Seawolf, Sea witch, Overseas, and other Garden Ketch owners to meet, network,exchange idea's,and help each other with our boats."

I hope this give you a starting out point. Feel free to message me if there is any additional information I might be able to assist with.

Happy Sailing,

Roy

swami maximus has a Hardin Seawolf 41 - perhaps hed comment:
http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...imus-5074.html

Bill Hardin started the CT (Ta Chaio) yard with two Chinese partners in the Taipei area (northern Taiwan) with the original William Garden designed Sea Wolf 40, the Sea Sprite, and the original Garden designed Force 50.
He left CT soon after, taking his Sea Wolf molds with him.
But his Sea Wolf 40 was copied by many yards and sold as CT41, Island Trader 41, Yankee Clipper 41, Sea Tiger 41, Transworld 41, etc., a very popular traditional ketch. The Force 50 molds were taken to Hudson Boat Company in the Taipei area, but the Force 50 was also copied as an Island Trader 51, Formosa 51, etc.
This copying problem is why it was nearly impossible to get a set of drawings from a Taiwanese builder.
