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??

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

That is one beautiful boat! Nice shot of you sailing away from them, are you sure they were't going the other way? ;0

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats


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).
