But I dont think they have as much glass in them as a Penguin almost the same shape thou.
Saw one Pacemaker at Insurance yard(many yrs ago) only had about 3 layers of glass on the nose which was all smashed in .

 Yeah I've herd the ones made from the 70s to the early 80s wer made strong with good quility glass . Then the quality changed when the original owner passed the moulds on to his son ... This is only what I've herd I could be wrong

I don't reckon there is any Bertram input

 They look nothing like a Bertram hull of the day--you can still see the original Bertram 23 hull  in a current Caribbean 2300, and the Reefrunner is very close to the original Bertram 20, just less deeply vee'd at the transom. Design changed from the original circa 1993, IIRC.
