John Neal of Mahina replied "The problem with Nordic 40's only turns up if the boat
is sailed much, and particularly if sailed offshore
. The main bulkhead deforms. It is a serious, but fixable problem and I can recommend a surveyor
who is very familiar with this problem and how to fix it." This is in line with what Pat says above. If I get the Nordic 40 on my short list I will contact you, Pat, to see the fix.
