FYI 2old2growup,

I've been sailing Alfie out of Fairhaven, WA since 2002. I agree, she is a great boat.

I was just looking at the web for recent info on Swiftsure sailboats and saw your, sort of, recent post.

All the Best... Jeff Young

I remember Alfie from back in the early 70's - IIRC it was the factory race boat. It was used in at least some of their advertising.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Swiftsure 24?

Hi Jeff,
I just came across your post and it was such a pleasant surprise. The last I had seen of Alfie was many years after we had owned her and she was being towed rather ignominiously from a local marina. That memory has always bothered me, given the pleasure she brought to my family. Glad to see that her lot in life has improved since then. We frequently come to Fairhaven to walk the waterfront, by any chance do you moor out in Fairhaven harbour? If so, my wishful thinking that "that sure looks like a Swiftsure out there" may have been more fact than fancy.
Nick

Re: Swiftsure 24?

Hi, it's Alex again. The Swiftsure 24' in question is now in the hands of a very nice couple and still moored at the Blaine Marina. Since it's restoration documented here, it has stayed in great shape. Pic attached.
