- I owned SWE-024 "Rush V" - 17.09.2016 by Bo Westerlund
- I owned SWE-024 "Rush V" during a few years during late 1970's. I think it was 1975-1979. I had the boat in Lidingö (just outside Stockholm).
I bought it from a person who had it in Fisksätra, and sold it to a person living outside of Gustavsberg, (both also just outside of Stockholm).
I couldn't change this in the Ownership history myself.
My name is Bo Westerlund
