I think you would find in the unlikely chance that some one offered say 1 million pounds for the Swallow, you would be hard pressed to prove in court that the original contributors were not owners.

I certainly felt like an owner when I paid the money.

It is an interesting legal question that could be posed in a law exam, however, the contributing group were interested in being part of the program and saving something that was important to them.

I certainly enjoyed all of my visits with Rob and the boat, as his kind wife said to my wife, old men sitting around drinking tea and talking boats or words that effect.

As long as it can be sailed by people that is the main thing, it is the fun in the books that is important.

Warm regards
