Hull 42: Old Sam Peabody

David Chase writes in June of 2006: “We trucked the boat home to Minnesota in '92 [They purchased her in 1991] and did quite a lot of work. We painted the hull (needs it again), put on a epoxy barrier bottom, all new holding tank, toilet, hoses etc., new electronics including radar, since upgraded again, varnished the interior, replaced the ports with bronze and the dorades with brass, installed a windlass with all chain and a Bruce anchor. Got all new canvas and all new sails, sheets and halyards. The engine, a Perkins 4-108, is about the only original thing on the boat. She is quite a handsome boat and we get a lot of compliments.

This is a great sailing boat and the nastier the day, the better care she takes of her crew. I like to race her single-handed because I know that if the wind gets wild enough to make everyone else quit, I'll get a trophy.

She is also a very comfortable live-aboard for a couple. I especially like our king size v-berth.
The only bad thing I can report is that I'm getting old so she may be for sale sooner than I would like.”
