We may have seen your boat then. We stop in Pender Harbour each year on the way up and the way back down, usually dropping a hook in Garden Bay. Last year, we took the dink around the bay and located a couple other Frasers right in Garden Bay.
I spoke to Arie as well about the chain plates and the fuel and water tanks. I'm still not sure where the stainless angle iron brackets for the chain plates are located, whether they are just below the deck surface (where I suspect) or whether they are further down below the cabinet structures. Can you see yours?
There is another gal here on sailnet that stops in now and then that grew up on a 42. I think her dad built it and I believe it's kept in Sidney. We met another 41 at New Castle last year named "Shellback". The owners were long time cruisers. This is their second Fraser. They brought out their photo album over a couple of beers showing how they put Shellback together, which took 7 years IRCC. I found it amazing that one could pour molten let into a fiberglass keel. Wonder who tried that the first time!
