Importing boats into Canada - George Cuthbertson informs - 17.06.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Information received from George Cuthbertson:
"During the 1950's, Peter Davidson and I, operating as Canadian Northern Co., imported many yachts from Europe into Canada including eight or ten 5.5 metres. In most cases we were working with Klaus Baess of Copenhagen, Denmark. "Svalan" was acquired through Knud Reimers, Stockholm, Sweden."

Not too much data available here, so far; name can be "Svalan" or "Suhlan"; as the name comes from a handwritten list from the end of the 80's, the name might not be the original name, though.
