Anyone know what type of boat this is?

So, I have got this boat in my hands and am going to revive it. I love the boat a lot and know that it is currently P.O.S but think in the long run of things is the one for me... she is 30' long and has a three cylinder volvo in it. The guy said she is a De Kleer Fraser 30 can anyone confirm that or if not does anyone know what she is

Re: Anyone know what type of boat this is?

It is a Fraser 30. DeKleer's moulded the glass and did a very good but basic job of it - nothing remotely exotic, not even vacuum bagging, strictly woven roving and bucket & brush.

Most of them were bought as hulls & decks so the build quality is variable - survey pretty essential unless you know your stuff in that regard.

Pretty good boats - that one is essentially an enlarged Cal 28. The raised deck makes them comfortable to handle.

Is that berthed at Shelter Island?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
