Notes

This design finished 1st and 2nd in the 1975 Fasnet race. Shown here is the flush deck 'competition'model. Other versions ('S' and 'P') were delivered with a low coach roof and a more conservative rig.
(The 'P' or Prestige version is shown in photo.)
Some were sold by Palmer Johnson as the PJ-40.
