Re: New keel lift mech supplier

Hi Fishy Well Bebop is finally fixed and I collected her from Suffolk Yacht Harbour yesterday. I have to say that SWP were excellent and would thoroughly recommend them if other Swift owners have problems with the keel mechanism. Only downside is that I am looking to put her away for the season, but...

Re: New keel lift mech supplier

Hi Just phoned SYH to see how my keel repair is and they still haven't done it, plus the service director seemed quite off with me stating that there was a 7 week lead time to get the bar. They have had it 7 weeks!!! Anyway I have again spoken to SWP and spoke to a very helpful Graham who asked me t...

Re: New keel lift mech supplier

Still having problems getting my keel lifting gear sorted with SYH. Just spoken to SWP about doing the same job for me, any idea of costs?

Re: Curious about Swifties demise

All was going well until we took the boat off the water on Thursday. When raising the keel had this horrible noise. I think the thread has gone. So I have le...

Re: Curious about Swifties demise

Good morning I still have a Swift 18 which I sail on Grafham Water and a great little boat. Glad to see that there is still some interest out there as regards the Swift 18. Mine is currently at home getting her ready for the season. Pity there doesn’t seem to be rallies anymore though. Hope you have...

Outboard Well Hatch

I now sail Bebop on Grafham Water where we are not allowed to use outboards. My understanding is that the Swift 18 had a outboard well hatch to stop build up of water in the well when sailing. As i now rarely use an outboard and if I do it is now an electric one, does anyone have pictures or measure...

Recently bought a mainmast (stack pack) from Jeckells Sailmakers and they done me a really good deal compared with C&J, so may be worth asking them. R...
