Swanson owners forum?

Hi all.

First time poster.

Iíve just taken delivery of a Swanson 28, and have been trying to glean info from the web, and searching on this fine forum, but itís pretty thin on the ground.

Nothing on sail boat data, and there doesnít appear to be an owners section or separate forum, not that I can find at least.

Maybe all the Swany owners are too busy sailing?!

Anyway, any info on a good resource on these yachts greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Jarv.

JarvW I surveyed the middle sister Swanson 36 on Monday. I think Gilow owns the big sister Swanson 42. They are all nice Swanson double ender designs.
Where are you based?
Cheers

There is a Swanson 28 berthed in the marina in Hervey Bay. Next time I see the owner I will mention you are looking for some other owners to talk to.
Cheers

Hi and welcome. I am also on a swing mooring, in Gwawley bay just near the hole in the wall boat ramp.
