Modifications to a Swan 47 - Design 2201

Here's a pretty typical major modification to some of our older boats: remove the bustle and skeg, re-fair and install a carbon spade rudder plus install a carbon mast and boom. This project was done to a Swan 47.

Here's a sketch of the proposed changes.

Here's a sequence of images which depict the changes.

  1. Hi
    I'm considering an upgrade/optimisation of a Swan 47.
    How successful was this and I note this rudder alteration was Option 3 - what were the other two?
