Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

I have located the sail plans for Cassie, thanks to the previous owner. I will post if anyone else is interested.

I just got the boat to Seward, Alaska. We were 14 days from Point Roberts Washington to Seward, with headwinds most of the way. We only able to sail for 10-12 hours on the whole trip! The fuel burn was 1.20 US gallons per hour at about 1400 rpm, good for about 6.7 kn with good sea conditions.

This begs a question: for those boats with the Isuzu engine, the fuel efficiency "sweet spot" is about 2200 rpm however due to the gear ration of the Velvet Drive, and the prop pitch, that is not attainable. How are the other Fraser 41s geared, and what prop size and pitch are they running?

It was a learning experience to take off on a 1400 mile trip after just a week on the boat but I would take this boat anywhere at this point.

regards, John

We have a Volvo MD17C with a MS drive and a three bladed maxiprop. We motor at 6 knots, 0.8 gal/hr. Fuel consumption goes up the more we push it over 6 knots.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

My wife and I have a Fraser 41 that we have had for about 10 years now. She was built by the Dekleer Brothers and the interior in teak and teak and holy floors.
We just returned from a sailing trip and ran into a couple from Seattle anchored near New Castle Island on their Fraser 41. It is amazing the number of folks who you run into who know about the Fraser, not a bad word to be said about them.
We purchased our boat from a couple who had taken her off shore back in the mid 80s and praised her performance. Great offshore boat.

Ray
looking back through my log book I realized it was you who I met at New Castle a week ago. I ran over to your boat Nikko see you but you were off somewhere so I didn't get a chance to talk to you some more.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Greetings Andy,

We just got back last week and yep, that was us. I don't remember your boat name off hand, but I have it written down in our log book on the boat. We had a couple of great sails on our way home. Nikko was in her element sailing close hauled in 20 apparent. We weren't carrying our genoa, but had our jib and full mainsail up and we were passing up other boats on the way down Malispina and Trinicomalie Channel. Took two days for the grin to come off my face. Good seeing you and your boat at New Castle. Sorry we missed your visit. I would have liked to compare interiors etc.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Hi Ray
Good to hear from you, We left Monday and slowly started our trip home.
We had a couple of good sails as well and there is nothing like being in a sweet spot sailing, it does put you in a happy place.
it would have been nice to have spent some time with you guys as well.
We came to an agonizing decision and we are going to put our boat up for sale this fall. I know there will be someone interested in a good offshore ready boat.
It was our dream to go off shore a few years ago but it did not work out.
Take care and great sailing.

No I must have missed that one. We did a search for Any Fraser 41s out there that were for sale as we just listed ours for sale.

Is that the one just outside Gunboat Bay narrows? on a private dock just around from Madeira Park?

I think she's been for sale for a while, seem to remember seeing it there with a sign on it last summer. We have friends in PH.. I could make an inquiry if you like...

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Hi again,

We have been having a bit of "6 foot itis" and been waffling about if we dare try to buy a bigger boat. After reflection have thought it best to stick with our boat, but if there is any chance the folks with the 41 would have any interest in selling the Hydrovane....or anyone who reads this knows of one for sale....we are very interested in getting a used one.

Thanks everyone! Fair winds. Rose
