Re: Rhodes Commodore Swiftsure
There's (I think) a Swiftsure 33 in the Gulfport Marina in Gulfport, FL, near St. Pete. I don't know if it is the original Swiftsure or the later Commodore Swiftsure 33. I also do not know who owns it, I've never been on it, and it's the only one I've seen in real life. Its designer as you may know is Phillip Rhodes, a well-regarded naval architect of the early-to-mid 20th century who designed lots of wooden and fiberglass yachts, many being blue water craft and fast for their time.
Wish I had more info for you. I am going to try to upload a few pictures of it that I took from the Marina dock about a month ago. Hope these help - and that a SNer or 2 with more experience of the boat will reply with more info.
