I just found this thread while doing a Google search on my new boat, but I bought the Peterson designed Serendipity 43 that someone linked to back in February. Bit of a distress sale, so I think I got

It was an odd time the late IOR period. Fantastic fleets, great racing and many beautiful looking boats that were absolute cunts of things to sail. Back them most  owners actually knew how to sail and

Having renovated an IOR 1-tonner, I feel obliged to point out that there are way cheaper ways to get a tidy boat on to a start line

I saw that. I am really tempted. It is a very well maintained one, by the looks of it.

Have they sorted out the mast truss problem?  On my Ballad the mast dropped 2" and the hull looked like a hard boiled egg as you peel it.  A mass of stress cracks.

Very sad! What happened?

 

Raced against her back around 2000.  IIRC, she rated 80ish.  My last memory was her being docked on the south side of the road at byc sans mast.  My pea-brain memory thinks it remembers it for sale w/o rig for 20K.  IOR warhorses are a dime a dozen.

what a fine looking boat. It seems to me that if you wanted to build a coastal cruiser, this would be a great start. The only obvious bit I can see missing is ground tackle management (and all that may entail). Seems to be a commonality in a lot of these old race boats - build a beautiful interior, but what about the hook?

Perfect project boat for FOP, I realize I'm six month late but does anyone knows anything if she's sold or if the the chain saw got her... Any information on her is highly appreciated.

I'm looking for a cool IOR boat to work on...

It's probably still around.  It was on CL just a week or two ago.  Cl ads typically expire in a week or two.  This ad pops in and out of CL every few weeks it seems.

There is a frac rig alloy Peterson 40 circa 1980 for USD 8500. Similar size to FOP, so maybe not what you're looking for: https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/boa/d/newport-beach-40-peterson-sailboat-1980/7417840753.html

formerly "Flambouyant".  Was a rocket in its day.... should've kept the tiller, though.

Last I heard it was rotting out in front of Balboa YC. That was 4-5 years ago.  Photos in the listing look like it's still there.  Kinda surprised they'd let it sit there that long.

I should add that the Holland 47 in the CL ad is Infinity IIRC - which had a flush deck (see photo below left).  I think the one in the CL ad had deck and cockpit/coaming mods in an attempt to make her more cruisey.  If my memory serves correct she had a low profile cabin added.  In any event, my point is I don't think she is in her stock configuration any more.  

Lots of boats on the West Coast may fit your bill.  There have been a couple of 40'+ Kaufmans - like the 46 below which was recently advertised at USD 15k and sold. Flush teak deck with MH rig.

I believe that your assumptions about Infinity is more or less correct, someone wanted to make her more of a cruiser and ran out of money. The only disadvantage with boats on the west coast is the transportation. I got some names for a trucking company a few years ago but cannot remember the name. Anyone here who can advise?

This doesn’t look like any DP design I’m familiar with.

This was the EXACT boat i was on my way to view in Sydney in Early 2020. Whilst in the agents runabout on way out to view her i spotted a boat i had on my bucketlist next to Farr designs so we stopped to look at it first... I never made it to see the 1104.

Solid boat and sailed well.  Owner was a short guy with a chip.  Thought Al Delerq knew how to sail (muffled laughter).

Probably not.  That one is a Heritage 37 - but in too good a condition to be called an IOR landfill IMO.

But the Mull 3/4 Ton Clockwork Rocketship (which I may have posted here before) definitely fits the definition of IOR landfill.  Such a sorry state she is in now.  Hilarious CL ad goes with the photo of CR below:

Okay, here is the text from the CL ad:

nice lookin racing sailboat, about 36',comes with 4 sets of sails has gimble propane stove,sellin for guy so know nothing except it runs good and needs interior work,it floats so u just need to tow it with boat or trailer or i can tow it,may rent space and u or i will fix, posible $300 a month to moor it and i can maybe fix it as i know how to fix boat,s,and only cost $50 per hour for boat repair,veiwing by appointment only.may have stuff to repair it.the history of boat ,it,s a 33' mull 3/4 Tonner designed for the world championships in Victoria b.c. a tsawwassen gentleman raced and cruised her thru the 80,s out of Tsawwassen yacht club and Point roberts yacht club.they won and come in 2nd in some world championships,the boat was fast in it,s day.it raced up to 50 races per year. Needs cleaning I might get time to do it

I remember seeing her in a somewhat sorry state in VI 360 alongside the dock in Port Hardy.  I recall feeling a bit sorry for the crew, as they were about to go out in the ocean in a boat that looked a bit unseaworthy.  She was fast, but IIRC very lightly built and suffered a few structural issues over the years.  I always thought she was a 1 tonner, not a 3/4 tonner?

How to save badly delaminating yachts? Simon Whitehouse: "One Tonner named "Response" designed by Sture Sunden, son of the Folkboat designer Tord Sunden. I owned her from 1999 until 2008. She was badly delaminating when I bought her. From 2001 to 2003 I took the keel off, removed the engine, turned her upside down, stripped off all the outer skin and foam core, and built a new hull on the original inner skin. I was 19 when I bought her, and had a ton of energy. Wouldn't be able to do it now..."

Kevlar laminate?

The only boat around here that I know of with hull delam problems was Kelea, a Contessa 39? that had a Kevlar laminate with big problems.

It got fixed and last I heard was a garbage scow liveaboard in Nanaimo.

It's always been a 3/4 tonner. Mull design done for the 3/4 ton World's in Victoria that year. A Donny Martin build and owned afterward by Al Whitfield of TYC and PRYC. I used to race with Al and his crew in the hole at TYC. It was dubbed at the world's as "Rockwork Crock 'o Shit". A little sad end there.

Well, there are more than a few Laser 28's around here.

Right about the Kelea garbage scow thing though.

Yes, according to Facebook-link above Simon Whitehouse says: "original laminate was polyester/kevlar. All old foam removed which left a very thin and flexible inner skin. First added a layer of 600gram quadaxial glass with Ampreg epoxy resin, which stiffened it up a little. Then in small sections, roughly 2' square at a time, abraded the new glass heavily, screeded with fairly runny epoxy/silica bog, then divinycell foam temporarily secured in place with screws and plywood washers at about 4" centres. The runny bog oozes up through the gaps between the cells in the foam, so you know when it's down properly. Then the outside of the foam faired, remaining gaps between the cells filled with more epoxy bog, and an outer skin of 2x layers 600gram quadaxial glass, again with Ampreg epoxy."

I repeat the Facebook-link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/203537404677541/posts/447996026898343/

The question arises if laminate involving kevlar is difficult to get to bond with the core/foam material?

 

My point was: Why bother? There are old IOR warhorses that are 10 cents on the dollar that don't need that type of rebuild. It seems silly to me.

You like the expensive ones.

My latest cost less than 4 cents on the dollar.

With perfect condition laminates.

Any chance you can dig it out and scan it?

I was "supposed" to be there on one of the then-new Ericson-34s, but the owner balked at the trucking cost from Southern California.  So I spent the week in Seattle with a redhead instead <lol>   Would love to have a copy for the archives.
