    Swift had run into the dock with several broken ribs and some planking. Unusual boat with triple mahogany decks and oversized ribs. Unlike many swifts, it has kept its shape very well. Steering wheel color matches the Evinrude outboard purchased with the boat. #10 canvas glued onto the planing section of the hull. Traditional filler used instead of airplane dope. I don't use dope anymore. It will go home as soon as the Michigan border opens.

    Very nice Gil. It has to be a hoot on the water. What size motor?

    I believe that it had an 18hp, which was lake made in 1959. The boat was rated for a 25hp.
