Here is my Dads boat – Orange Krait, a Peterson Designed Chaser 29 built to the IOR rule (originally named Justice V from RCYC) – has been part of the family for as long as I have been alive.
The boat was never stock – modified right out of the shop in ’75 raced hard, de tuned for cruising, then set up for PHRF racing at Bronte Harbour Yacht Club. We sailed her so much over the 30 years on Lake Ontario most of the non-skid completely wore off and we recently did a complete re-fit. I still can’t believe I spent my vacations cruising on her sleeping in pipe births, they seemed so much more comfortable back then.
In this photo we are leading in a TGIF race using some vintage matching sails just for fun – sorry for the bad sail trim I wasn’t alive the last time the blooper was flown on the boat. – Anarchist Cam
