Boat History: Believe the boat was built by Francis Schwander . We identified the boat from the sails that came with it which included measurers stamps from 1937. Bought the boat from Cheryl Lommatsch in 2012. It had been in their family since the fifties when her father bought it from a coworker.

Francis Schwander was the Fleet 2 Captain in the 1930’s and a very active Snipe sailor out of the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club.
