Swan 42 - Ron Holland Design - 1980-1985
 
Any owners out there of a 1980-85 Swan 42? I would like to touch base and know more about this fantastic sailboat.

Cheers.

Currently I am restoring a Ron Holland Swan 42', race boat and need to fabricate a new pulpit. I am looking for photographs and or another owner in the area. I'm in Virginia and would appreciate any information.
Thanks, John

Da nada.... ;)

Any good SS fabricator can create what you'll need.. and you have the opportunity to customize at the same time (eg, pulpit seat, nav lights, etc.)

I am currently restoring 42/003 in Sydney and would be very interested in comparing notes

We have 42/003, built in 1981. we purchased in Europe earlier this year and shipped the boat back to Sydney. The fundamentals are very good, sound dry hull and deck, new teak 06 spars and engine good. Systemically she needs renewal, new plumbing fuel lines etc. I will also refinish all the varnish. The spars are being re anodized.

We have stripped out all the old instrumentation and found miles of old wire from 30 years of add on. The boat is very original and fortunately none of the previous owners have messed up the deck layout or interior.

We have found the yard helpfull. They don't have all the old fittings but can produce a surprising number.

This is probably not the place for an ongoing exchange on the finer points of a 42.
Let me know if you think email would be better.

To jamesjle,
I'm having a bit of trouble posting on this website the problem seems to be posting an email but yes I do prefer email. (yahoo)
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,
jtscranton
