if this is an Aero Tech built in Sarasota, FL. then you just answered your own question with the info you found. I cant recall the builders name (been a lot of years) but I lived there and a buddy worked for them. he had a habit of cutting some corners. things like running out of resin and buying what ever was really cheap to finish the boat even if it wasnt compatible. he was a real "rob peter to pay paul" type of guy. they were good looking but I never thought any would still be around after some of the construction techniques he tried.
