Its my understanding that these started out as a one-off Transpac sled similar in concept to a Santa Cruz 60. But what to you do with a 65 foot mold once you built the race boat version....I know! Build a really cheap, strangely laid out competitor to the Hunter 54. (I actually sort of like the Hunter 54, which reportedly started out as a left over mold to one of Warren Luhrs' Ostar boats.) To me these are the kind of one trick ponies that drive me nuts. But then again, I know this one is just one of my prejudices.
