I have just purchased a swift no. 478 and also a sail and boom on eBay No.486, however the mast that came with the boat looks like it came from an Enterprise and I do have a spare mast head rig, but is the mast on these boats fixed or rotating, outside of this the boat is in reasonable condition.

Mast is rotating and of a big flattish profile, much, much chunkier that an Ent. Scroll through the Swift 419 thread and you should see.

Please let us know more about your Swift. I restored number 5 last year and I don't think there's many left.
