General Information
From an Early-1970's O'Day Swift Sailboat Magazine Ad:  "Sailboarding!  The word
conjures up images combining the excitement of sailing with the thrills of surfing - and
that's just about what happens.  These little beauties skim across the top of the water like
it's glass.  They're ultra-maneuverable...and they're so portable you can store them just
about anywhere.  With features like a recessed self-bailing cockpit and foam-packed
glassed-together hull and deck for positive floatation, you can be righted and on your
way in less than a minute after a capsize.  Easily car-toppable - and easily affordable!"
