Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

So Nikko made it on to another sailor's blog this summer. We met up with some folks on a Hallberg Rassy 40 in Nanaimo. They tagged along with us up to Desolation Sound. We had a good sail across the strait, close hauled with 15 apparent. The HR40 took some pictures of Nikko's stern, as it got smaller and smaller and smaller. Bwa-ha-ha.


We met another Fraser 41 in Melanie Cove, "Circa" which was an owner finished boat. It turns out that we knew a lot of the same people who call Roscoe Bay their favorite anchorage. We hadn't bumped into each other before because we typically anchored up in July, while they were anchored up there in August. Small world.


The Fraser 41 for sale at the entrance of Gun Boat bay was still there this year.

Great shot of Nikko under sail, Ray! Nice to have those, so hard to get them of your own boat.

When's the big push-off??

One of the original Fraser sailboats. The website says:

Quote:
"Justa" is one of the first 6 original molds of the Fraser 42 that the DeKleer bros made famous. These first rugged Center cockpit 42's were built in Vancouver for 6 Air Canada pilots (actually first called Vancouver 42's).

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

So I've had enough folks mention that there ought to be a Fraser website that I registered a Fraser website. It's called fraserboats.com It's not up yet. I got a hold of the owners of "Circa" and when they heard, they called Aire DeKleer up. He's anxious to share and I'm anxious to hear all about his boats. If any other Fraser owners would like to share pictures of their boats, especially while they were building them, I would love to have them. PM me for an email address.

Didn't realize that Arie DeKleer was still alive.. I think his brother passed away some time ago?

Looking forward to seeing that site up, Ray. goodonya.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

I think a Fraser boat website is a great idea!

I would hope that someone could access whatever files were available with hull numbers, specs etc, for those of us Fraser boat owners who have been wondering about their boats histories. For instance I have two original plan drawings of center cockpit boats, one labeled Fraser 42 and the other labelled Fraser 41.

Regards,

One of our club members owns 'Saw-Lee-Ah', a CC Fraser 42 that is recently back from a multi year Pacific circuit.

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

I spoke to Aire DeKleer this past weekend. I was jotting notes as fast as I could to reconcile some of the different stories I've heard about how their boats got started. He's offered to meet me at Gibson's Landing when we pass through this summer. I'm hoping to maybe get some pictures of their shop and anything else that might memorialize his boats.

Hyrdflyr, when I first spoke to Aire back in 2006, he told me that he still had files on several of his boats and that if I were to give him the hull number he could pull my file. I don't know if that answer still stands, but he was very helpful. I betcha if you wrote him a letter he'd respond.

BTW, Aire is selling his Fraser 41 "Omega". It comes with a large sail inventory, it's finished off inside professionally and it's rudder has been lengthened to better handle spinakers. This is a Vic-Maui race winner back in 1988.

Smile Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Thanks Ray,

I have a bill of sale from Arie to Hans and Elfrieda P. for the vessel "Parallee" License No. 13K65300 but have never found a documentation type number anywhere in the boat. Do you know where it might be located?

Since the boat was listed as built in 1975/77 and first sold by Arie in 1981, I think it was Arie's boat during that time.

I would love to write to Mr. DeKleer. If you have it could you PM me his address please?

Regards, John
