"I had the pleasure of crewing on bear the 81 and 82 seasons with the original owner out of Grand Haven Michigan. Midge Verplank who was a wonderful owner and an excellent racer. Most of the crew were competitive E scow sailors . She was built at Palmer Johnson in aluminum with a Stearns triple spreader rig, hydraulics, and North sails. A real first class program. She won a lot of hardware. We were second in the fleet corrected in the 82 Mac losing to Leading Edge. Sleeping Bear was almost impossible to beat in light air and a real handful downwind in a breeze. A beautiful boat .

Picture and comment from Facebook 2021 "We raced the Doug Petersen designed two tonner “Sleeping Bear” on Lake Michigan in the ‘80’s. This boat proved unbeatable in light air particularly as it had a penalty stick in it 72’ high. Here she is in 'Bear Air'".
