    There was a fire at the factory and the molds for the 3000 series went with it.

    When rebuilt, Tony Smith built different molds too. A completly different boat for the most part.

    I went from a corsair 31 to a shuttlecat 32. So far not missing the speed as much as I thought. Love that I still have tillers and an outboard. Impressed on how well the boat goes upwind, and I would feel comfortable sailing the boat in blue water, so she is working great as a coastal cruiser.

    I believe a group called packsail is building molds for similar boats at present.

    cheers,

    What do you think about travel in poland? Which city is good to see? Mayby Cracow? I hear that Cracow is a city full of astonishing contrasts and it never ceases to amaze with its magnitude of dimensions and themes, which are there to be discovered, absorbed and understood by the inquisitive.
