Notes

5.5 USA 28 - historic comments - 04.03.2019 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Mike Fisher Reports:
"...Mr. Taylor provided me with a California registration, which Wolfe and Richter had signed. However, Mr. Taylor indicated he had purchased the boat from the Kohler Kraft boat yard. He performed quite a bit of work on the boat, including replacing floors, frames and rebuilding the inner keel. He also started to install cedar veneer over the original mahogany planking. He used ferrous staples which are rusting. I don't know if he actually renamed the boat; however he included naval architect drawings for the inner keel work. The drawings referred to the boat as the sloop "Judith"..."

The boat was (as I remember) built by Sundsandviks Båtvarv ( later to become the Nötesunds Båtvarv) and designer was Einar Ohlson.
Owner - 12.08.2016 by Sture Sunden
This boat was built by Mr Gunnar Andersson of Gothenburg. He was the owner and also managing director of the company AB Telfa, which was marketing sailboats worldwide ( Kings Cruiser 28 designed 1954 and others) and also marine equipment, such as Jabsco pumps and Morse controls for the Swedish market.
