Super-Calin Design Sold
« on: October 09, 2010, 19:36:47 PM »
Lelou, a poster on SA commented on Jean-Pierre Magnan having sold the SC design & he is no longer building them.
Does anyone know who has purchased the rights to the boat?
One was built in Quebec, 718 "Benjamin", I wonder if that means the SC is now available as a kit-boat?
803 was built this year so they are still in production.

Hello there,

I sailed Super Calin and Pogo 2 in various conditions.  I prefer the Super Calin in most.  Jean-Pierre Magnan sold his design twice in Qu├ębec. As far as I know, it's not a kit, it's just plans.  I didn't know if the buyers completed their project.  A self built mini built to series specs would not be allowed to compete in series in a mini race, but it's the same boat and a whole lot of fun.

One Quebec boat, 718 Benjamin is registered on the Classe Mini website as a SC. 
Maybe she was imported & not home built.

Two other home built wood boats are:
750 Express O-V is listed as a proto with the designer's name being the owner.

783  Glloq is also listed a proto with the designer's name being the owner.

Maybe one or both of those are built from SC plans, but why not give credit to the designer if that is the case?
