NOTES
Peterson design #77 and one of the most successful IOR racing designs.
The first boat, 'Acadia' was a winner at the SORC series of 1980. Another boat of this same design won the same even overall in 1983. ('Scarlett O'Hara' shown in photo.)
The method of construction for this semi-production versions was advanced for this period especially considering the number that were ultimately produced. Besides the flush deck "racing" version, there was also a Racer/Cruiser version with a low coach roof, smaller cockpit, and cockpit coamings.
