Notes

(S&S Design #2014) The first of 2 versions of the PJ-30. (both from S&S but different designs). It is the same as S&S 30, built by Aquafibre - Rackheath, UK. Aquafibre also sold the boat as the AQUA 30.
The second version, see PJ 30(HUGHES)(S&S design #2098) was built by Hughes Boat Works in Centralia, Ontario, CAN. Hughes sold this latter boat as the NORTHSTAR 1000.
Thanks to Owen McCall, PJ 30 owner, for supplying information on the different versions of the S&S 30.
