NOTES
With the introduction of fiberglass, the 'hot molded' contruction method (developed during WWII) became too expensive, and production of the SWORDFISH was discontinued in 1963. The same equipment, however, was used to build the first ABLACORE which has a slightly modified hull and more sail area.
