Doug Peterson boasted an excellent reputation for creating fast and easily managed yachts for the IOR rule which continue to be competitive now under IRC and AMS. This vessel was a consistent performer on Port Philip Bay under previous ownership where it was extensively upgraded with North 3DL race sails and a new Volvo 38HP Engine in 2004. The current owner sailed the vessel to Hobart where it has been enjoyed as a local family cruiser and social racer.
