Peterson 35 Ganbare Identification and Revival in Sailing Anarchy Posted December 28, 2020 6 hours ago, 12 metre said: Fantastic looking resto so far. Definitely a Peterson 35 hull. Deck and cabin definitely custom built. Here is a blog from a previous owner who did a resto just 10 years ago. http://peterson35-blackheart.blogspot.com/2011/01/blackheart-peterson-35-salilboat.html Doesn't really matter which variant the hull is. Minor mods to the original Cooper Ganbare hull that gave rise to the Martin built Peterson 35 MkII and MkIII variants. But I believe the MkII and MkIII share the same hull - only the deck and cabin differed. Several custom home builds were done from hull & deck purchased from Martin. I can think of at least 2 possibly 3. My guess is Waylon was purchased as a hull only from Martin. Previous owners tried racing her for a couple of years but I think had a difficult time finding crew and seemed to give up on her. 12 Meter, I've definitely taken a look through the blog, thanks for that, Wayne was great at documenting everything! Certainly to be commended some of the work that he did, In time I plan to record a similar blog about her current resto - time always seems to be the enemy. Yes, Waylon was purchased as a hull from cooper - it was built in a barn in langley by my dad and his friend Doug Brealey - launched in 74' my dad was the original owner and lived aboard in false creek for 5 years before marrying my mom. I was born in 91' so this is all way before my time. I do plan to race her whenever I do not crew myself for 6's or much bigger boats.
