Heiti bought this boat in Sweden and had it shipped over to Canada in 1963 or 1964. We belonged to the national yacht club. Not sure when he sold it ( I was 10 or 11 )

Thalatta and Complex II - 28.06.2012 by Matias Johansson
There are Arvid Laurin drawings in the Swedish Maritime Museums' archives from 1951 talking about the "modification of Stigwan's Thalatta" for Britton Chance (Sr).

Does anybody know what the relationship of these two boats (USA-1 Complex II and SWE-13 Thalatta) is?

Talatta - 07.03.2008 by Jens Busch
The original owner was GSK (Göteborgs segelklubb ?) and the helmsman was Jan-E Berglöw. But already in 1951 the owner seems to have been Bengt Stigwan, GKSS. In 1952 Kurt Ribbhagen is the owner, sailing for SSS, Stockholms Segelsällskap. Heiti Roman, Canada, seems to be the owner in 1964.
