Resolute One-Design - William Tripp Jr. (1955)

The Resolute was a 28' One-Design racer by William Tripp Jr., commisioned by a group on Long Island Sound. (US). The first 12 were imported from Holland in 1955. (4 more the following year???). It was an active class for a number of years. But I had always wondered why today you never hear of single one that still exists. It turns out that nearly all were destroyed in a boatyard fire in 1974. Thanks to the William Tripp (III) Design office (Norwalk, CT) for telling the story as well as providing original drawings.

Hi there, I want to register on Saildata so that I can ask a question in the forum, but the site says registration is disabled. Please fix! Specifically, I want to learn more about the Swift 33, built by Swallow Craft in Korea. The Swift 40 is on Saildata, but not the 33. I want to know who the designer is. Thank you Michael Robertson dcwritereditor hotmail com

As a modern teacher I'm always glad to find some interesting materials like this one. I can incorporate it into my lectures and make them more educational.

When I was a child, my dream was to buy a boat and to become a sailor. I never wanted to be a pirate, though. But I always wanted to be a captain of my own boat. Now I grew up, and I still would like to have a boat, but now I understand that no may how many money will bring my review of Marvelousessays.com, it still won't be enough to buy a boat. They are hella expensive.
