My boat is the prototype. a flush deck race boat. It was used well and hard, now in need for a refit. I found a fabricator to rebuild the pulpit but could really use a few photos specific to that purpose, that would be most helpful.
Thanks,

John, herewith 3 pulpit photo's. I can provide some dimensions if you let me know what you want. As you will note the steel is a little bent in places, 30 years of action.

I think as junior members we are barred from exchanging email addresses for a while, anti spam or something. I think I/we can perhaps apply to each other to be "friends" that might circumvent the problem.

No doubt doing what you are you must be aware of the rebuild of "Flirt of Paget", another very close relative of the S42. Is your boat a Swan build or a one off. We built a boat in NZ in 80>82 so were very aware of the IOR success of Holland at that time.

I think the Holland period at Nautor is rather underrated by some, perhaps the fans of S&S and Freres. The boats, at least externally, were a dramatic departure, definitely a more brutal elegance than past or future.

Let me know if there is anything else I can provide, we have a comprehensive set of drawing from Nautor and Holland Design.

John, I'm not sure whether the photos have come through, maybe not. I have sent a private message with email address, let me know if that gets through.

Hi John,

I have an '81 S-42. Happy to share any ideas on this boat. Mine is presently in the Caribbean. Cheers.

We have 42/003, ( January 81 ) in Sydney, currently refurbishing. I would definitely be interested in information from time to time.

Happy to. I did quite a refit to mine which has greatly improved it. Esp. for singlehanding. Less deck clutter too.

I would update the design of the pulpit to accommodate flying asym-spinnakers. The old design has too much overhang fwd. With yours being 42/001 and the FD model, you're not so locked into the "keeping it original" thought.

Q. Re the FD model and originality. What does the FD stand for and why less originality?

FD for flush deck. Hulll #1 is a race version with no deckhouse or coamings and not much interior. It isn't like any of the standard Swan 42s.
