    Smile Swiftwing

    Can anyone help and direct me to a real boat that I can use photos of to constuct the J Pottinger plan of Swiftwing. I have constructed the hull but can not find a boat of that name as 10m boat on the photo section. The original boat is a Dennis Swires Design steel hull boat.

    Hi,
    As far as I know Swiftwing is a ficticious name although there have been several similar boats built. That design is more beamy & bulky than the more popular Denis Swire under 10m design.
    One boat of the same design as "Swiftwing" that features in several photos on this site is Endeavour - HL 42, based in Torquay, Devon.
    Some photos of her are linked below.
