2012 February, mail from
Dan Göransson with all information and this comment: "Curiosity:
is that the boat was designed especially to participate in HTC 1980 and with
a prolonging of the hull, alteration of the fractional keel, and a new rigging,
she should be able to measure as a ¾-ton for the World Cup in Finland
However, finishing the Swedish national trials for HTC as 2nd/approx 30, only beaten by Peter Norlins ?Butterfly? (thanks to the first IYRU:S ?compensation? rule), but ahead of other designers/skippers as E. Still from Finland, Hakan Södergren, Rolf Magnusson and Bergstrom/Ridder from Sweden... The Trouble Shooter yachts and skipper had a respectful reputation all over Sweden and Scandinavia. Unfortunately, skipper Thorsten Brunius died in cancer some ten years ago. His memory lives with a Swedish Rescue Boat that bears his name."
