if you've got a 47 and you want it to come under the 40' rule, well that's what it takes...

So who added a beak to a non-beak boat to make it 40' to qualify for a race class?

A few years ago, you had to run 39' or less in the Catalina Ski Race, it was either cut off the beak or the swim step. There are a lot of Fountains out here with that seam on the nose...

Baja added 3' "falsies" (as Ross called them) to one of their Express-built cats to get it into Open class- eons ago.
