I agree with this, although the original hull mold is the 42' Performer built by Billy Elswick in Ft. Lauderdale.

There is a really nice one that has been in Grand Haven MI for years. They built a few in Grand Haven if I remember the story right. They were called Axioms, Marc/Boatme I am sure knows all the specifics. MR

As far as I remember the Axioms by Offshore Concepts were wider hulls than the one pictured above. I think I once read they used widened Cig molds?
