Origin update for SUI 202 - 02.11.2020 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
With the reappearance of the measuring certificate of SUI 202, a connection to US 94 "Lana" as the original boat is given. Hence the transfer of the ownership entry for Y. Anselmetti. The question now: Where could former 5.5 BA 15 be today?
Information - 09.04.2009 by Matti Muoniovaara
Red Fox ex Coonawarra was shipped to Switzerland. Now it has Swiss sail letters SUI-202. In the Swiss Flottenregister is erratic information It’s not Reliance owned by Chandler. The owner of SUI-202 is Y. Anselmetti. In my archives I have the name Ptilux for this boat (information came from Switzerland). So I put the name to Ptilux and owner Y. Anselmetti from year 1993.
