- Owners - 27.09.2011 by Jens Busch
- Tirfing/Broström owned the boat the first years. From 1954 to 1973 the owner is Curt (not Kurt) Winberg. From 1974 the boat is named Concapot and the owner is Håkan Norberg.
- 'GKSS-1951/Lotten' renamed - 20.09.2008 by Topi Lintukangas
- Because the lack of appropriate name, originally GKSS-1951 and later Lotten, boat is now registered and renamed in Finland to 'Aava'. In fFinnish language, that word stands for wide open sea.
- Restoration started - 12.09.2008 by Topi Lintukangas
- Lotten is currently under restoration at Loviisa. Modified hull will remain as it is, to be able to use boat for both cruising and racing. Goal is to get her back to water in summer 2009, after four years out of water.

- Not built by Olsson - 29.05.2008 by Jens Busch
- SWE 4 was built in Motala, Sweden, by Lindell at the Trickson boat yard.
Arthur "Trickson" Olsson was a "big man" in Motala and he, I believe, sponsored the Lindell boat yard, hence the name Tricksons.
My mistake mixing things up!
(And then there was another boat yard, Motala Båtvarv, founded by the William family, well-known for their "William-motorboats" and for having built sail boats as well, for instance the 5.5:s SWE 13 and SWE 20)
