Its Bocchino not Bocciano
Stray Cat: e-mail me whenever you like... There's a PM process here and I just cleared my mailbox.
The old 32' Skater (designed in 1986) featured a "fine" forward entry and did not have the recovery present in the 30' Shadow. We made the same mistake with a couple of the Conquests. The belief at the time was that a longer constant section might hurt top speed. Peter Hledin corrected this issue with his next design (the 40') and has made significant strides since then (IMO the new 32, is excellent in forward recovery design). To associate that boat with "carnage" is unfair and wrong , given its incredible race record, the absence of cockpit safety guidelines early in its career and, the fact that there were more of them than people qualified to drive them........ There's still a LOT of that around in boats of all types.
By the way most of the accidents involving the 32 were barrel rolls not stuffs......... Which to me are more indicative of driver error ( and backward prop rotation , of course). Finally, if the boat is/was so dangerous than all of the people who "popped" it are more than thieves since they had the benefit of seeing the accidents BEFORE copying the boat. I believe that Peter designed it in good faith believing that it was a valid design and a natural progression from his 24 footer.
I'll let someone else fill in which are the "popped" hulls.
