2018 Peterson Facebook, "We have a friend who would like to buy this boat and restore her for current HT racing.
This boat was for sale on YachtWorld for about 10 years, listed as a Peterson 30 or a Didham 30 in a slip in Alamitos Bay, Long Beach, California. It isn't currently listed. The listing agent provided us the contact info for the owner, but it was out of date. If you know the current location of the boat, or know how to get hold of the owner, please let us know.
I last saw it in a Naples slip in Alamitos Bay.
The boat was in Alamitos as Bryan mentioned. We looked at it a year or so ago. Very rough and even if it was free would have been an expensive project. The last conversation and email I had with Doug P was about Scorpion shortly before he passed. I have the owner's contact info, if he still has her.
Please either contact the owner for us, or message his info to us. Potential new owner is looking for a project to restore, so condition does not have to be Bristol.
Looks a lot like Petrified, Blackaller's Half Ton world championship effort. 1978 I think.

2020 March 9, "Who wants my boat? I've gotten my money's worth in adventure in shelter. Kinda don't want this floating liability as I move back onto land and start attending school again. First choice is my brother but I'd rather give it to someone with the funds to get her done up nice. I know @Editor was interested in 2011, figure it's fine to put this here given the thread before."Dan Pascoe
New owner, and new name,
Freedom, US
17 June, "A container ship has spotted the recently abandoned sailboat Freedom drifting approximately 400 miles west of San Diego. On May 20, three sailors en route to Pillar Point abandoned the 30-ft sailboat amid what they described as “harsh sea conditions.” The USCG team who rescued the trio later issued a safety Marine Information Broadcast warning mariners about the unmanned vessel. Nearly a month later, Freedom has been seen still afloat with her shredded sails trailing off the deck. The USCG sent us this photo of the sailboat taken by crew on a passing container ship. Happily Freedom‘s crew is safe and sound, but we’re curious about the boat. What is it? We weren’t able to find out from the owners what kind of boat it is (other than a sailboat of course) and are unable to identify it from the photo above.";
