No...the seawind referenced in Good Old Boat is the Allied Seawind II and the person with the '31' probably actually has the original Allied Seawind 30....which is sometimes called a 31 because it is 30'6" on deck...rounding off to 31.
The 41 foot Seawind referenced above in the links has absolutely NOTHING to do with Allied Seawinds.
With that said:
Other than my own Al;lied Seawind ketch and the Allied Seawind II ketch, I had never heard of another boat called Seawind besides the Seawind catamaran company. So when I heard about this 'seawind' I was hoping it wouldn't be something like a Catalina or Hunter.
While it DID turn out to be a no-sheer fin keeler....it does sound well made. That IS a strange rudder, but at least it has a skeg !
Seems heavily laid-up fiberglass....and it sounds like the keel is fiberglass encapsulated lead, rather than bolted on steel, which is good.
I like the dedicated chart table and the amount of strength-inducing bulkeads through out.
I also like the attempt at a centerline galley sink.
Nice big head.......workable forward cabin.
And I think the side-ways steering station and throttle/gear shift, while it may take getting used to, is actually pretty cool when motoring or motor-sailing in sheety weather. It sure seems out of the way!
Looks like only 4 were made, which is probably why no one's heard of them.
All in all......not a bad boat.
