Re: Swan owners technical forum
I agree many Swan owners are hands on, particularly the older boats. Unfortunately there are various obstacles to a cohesive exchange of useful information. The S&S Association is very active and seem to be a good operation. However they are not interested in boats designed by Holland or Freres. The Swan Owners Association of the US is just that, really only American owners. I may be wrong about this but that is how it appears.
According to Mateo, the driving force behind the S&S group, Nautor are completely uninterested in the older boats. To get an information forum going you probably would need their co operation to send out a notification that it was being proposed. Very unlikely apparently.
Its a pity because somewhere to exchange views for all would be very useful. It would be possible if you could get the word out there. Any ideas??
