Do you know if many were made? Probably not as it happens sometimes with boats that are way ahead of its time.

AFAIK only that one had the deckhouse style. I know of at least one other that was a center cockpit (pic attached). It WAS a fast boat in its day - a race winner.

There was also a 42' version that had both deck styles.

Porpoise was the boat I referred to a while back that I looked into buying years ago. The owner was selling it because at 90 Y.O. it was becoming too much for him to singlehand.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
