I'm looking a buying
a 1977 aluminum hull
46ft Doug Petersen design.
Very interested in this boat
but I'm struggling to find any historical information on her.
I've been told that - "she was originally named Williwaw and I'm told that it was the latest in IOR design by Doug Petersen of Americas cup fame. In its first season, skipper
Dennis Conner took it to victory in the SORC series. The following year, 1979, it was selected to represent the USA
, again skippered by Connors, in that years Admirals Cup competition, completing the now infamous Fastnet Race
where many vessels and lives were lost
I have no idea how many were made nor if there are any reviews
on the boat
Any help from the old school
gurus on here will be very much appreciated. I've attached photos of the hull
