Notes

Yet another altered version of the KELLY-PETERSON 44 (PETERSON 44 CUTTER), first offered in 1976.
(Often, as in this case, with out the payment of design royalties.)
To make the boat longer, it is said that builders simply added an incremental distance between each station on the original plans.
