Notes

The SAILFISH is the first boat built by Alcort Inc. Plywood construction, wood spars, and available as a kit.
In the beginning they were built in an unheated shed. After an article appeared in 'Life' magazine, they couldn't keep up with orders and had to build a new factory.
The SUPER SAILFISH (1948?), also of wood, was slightly larger.
The SUPER SAILFISH MKII, (1949-1975) was the first fiberglass boat from Alcort.
