John Michel is a little eccentric, his theory of crushing the molds so that nobody else could manufacture them makes sense, its just so harsh. Whats strange though is that when I got the 46 (ex gancia dei gancia raceboat molds) the owner of Concept beat my door down to buy the mold from me back in 2001, we made a deal and he moved the mold to his shop where its sat outside untouched since then....
Yes, John is the guy I talked to, about 18 months ago. He had a "new" 37' SH hull for sale on Ebay at the time. He said it was a 40 SH without the swim platform.
Is there more than one 40 mold?

Did the 32 Midnight or the 30 Corsa have a notched transome like the 34 SH?

Dude, you spoke to me on the phone. There is only one 40' mold and no the 32 midnight did not have a notched transom.

FYI the 33 ocean hawk was also a copy of the 32 midnight/30 corsa....

Well, Duh.
Welcome to OSO, and thanks for all the info You've given me/us. I sure like my boat. Is there any variation of the 30' Corsa still made. Is the 31 Sonic from the Corsa as well?

So Buzi added the notched transome to the 34 SH?

The only variation of the 30 corsa still made is the 33 Ocean Hawk. No the 31 Sonic had nothing to do with the old corsa.
