Any footage/pictures of Swanson 42 sailing?

I would love to see some footage of a swanson 42 under sail? I haven't been able to find anything, which seems odd considering how many are out there.

Can anyone help out or able to share a link?

Email Jo at Tin Can Bay Boat Sales, he owns one and might have some footage?
Cheers

Always difficult to sail and photograph at the same time

I’ve got some video footage too, but a bit big to post.

But then, of course, there are the usual pictures of a Swanson 42 under repair...

Hiya Banjo! That photo brings back happy memories, thank you.

Sadly we launched the MPS a few months back and it promptly tore in half, just too old and too worn to be worth repairing. Have to start saving the $$$ for a new one then it's off to SVTotem to have it made.

Re: Any footage/pictures of Swanson 42 sailing?

Great photos and a fine vessel. We will keep an eye out for Swansons for sale over the next 6 months. We have a beautiful boat already, but now with a little one (9month old) on board we are suddenly short a extra cabin. There’s a lot I like about the Swanson design so it’s a good next choice for us.

So you’re in SA glow? We are sailed around from garden island to Sydney a few yeArs back and are now in yamba, Nth NSW.

Thanks for the pics. Would love to see a vid if you find a way of posting it.

Sure. Why not? The last deck lasted 40 years, same construction but polyester and csm not epoxy and biaxial cloth.

The next person who tells me I should use marine ply is welcome to pay for it. Then I can encapsulate some really nice ply in epoxy.

Probably not. It’s 40 years old so it is getting a big, steady refit from the bottom up.

Remains sailable at all times.

Re: Any footage/pictures of Swanson 42 sailing?

I never understood the logic of using cheap plywood with the ability to shop around so easily on the internet today. I quickly found on Gumtree (our craigslist) 12mm marine ply for $50 a sheet and 12mm hardwood plywood for $35 a sheet. Thats without even asking for a discount if you purchased a large amount of plywood. So using cheap pine plywood with its knots and voids is hardly worth the hassle in my opinion.
But I have surveyed boats with pine plywood decks and some do seem to last and then other times the decks are rotten as.
I was on a nice Swanson 42 today in Tin Can Bay. The interior was well built and it really feels like a little ship when you step down below
Cheers
