I'm copying my thread from CF.

I believe this was the first A47. There is some scuttlebutt about another one called Pounce having some issue at a dock in Virginia. Dang, I liked those boats. The saga starts about 3/4 down this page.

I met and chatted with the owner of the boat dismasted in Hampton. It was last year during a violent t-storm that included a small tornado - if I remember correctly. Didn't sound like a problem with the boat. Bad luck.

Is that the one on display at Annapolis? Was the mast OK or did it get replaced?

I don't know. Sorry. I can't even remember the guy's name. We were introduced by a mutual friend at a 4th party, so some brain cells were being sacrificed.....
