Fraser 30

Anyone has knowledge on Fraser 30? I understand they were build by De Kleer and their inside was finished by their owner. There is not much info on them online. Are they sea worthy? Could they sail under light wind?

Re: Fraser 30

De Kleer's built good quality hulls & decks. Nothing tech about them, just well laid mat & roving. There are two versions of the 30 - a raised flush foredeck and a motorsailer. The basic design is an adaptation of the old raised deck Cal 28. The motorsailer had the hull mould split and widened about a foot at the stern. Depending on the fitout they can be very good boats. Some were pro built but many of the homebuilts were as good as anything out there. I imagine their sailing qualities would be pretty good on a late 60's - early 70's level.

If you can find a decent one you'd have a pretty good boat - at least one made it to Australia with no drama.

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.
