When you see a boat that is listed as a 'Peterson' it is typically referring to the work of one of two designers, Doug Peterson, who is a very successful designer of modern high performance boats, or else Murray Peterson who designed a series of beautiful schooners and traditional working craft inspired designs.
Doug Peterson had three designs that were produced in large numbers, the Peterson 34/35, Islander Peterson 40 and the Kelly Peterson 44/46. Murray Peterson's most successful designs were the Coasters.
I doubt that you would find a forum or discussion group for either designer.
