2009 May from forum: "We know at least one of the three original Peterson/Eichenlaub pin tail QTs (Valkyrie) was cut up a few years ago. No one seems to know where the other two are ("Tickled Pink" and "El Principio")";

and comment from Dutch QT Facebook 2017:
"Twenty-eight boats sailed in the two classes
with most of the fleet and the competition concentrated in the 24-boat Quarter
Ton Class. Sailmaker Lowell North of San Diego sailing the Doug Peterson-designed
'El Principio' put together two firsts and a third in short races, a sixth in
the 70-mile medium-distance race, and a first in the 150-mile long-distance
race to edge John Mueller's Peterson-designed 'Tickled Pink' with Bob Chilton's
'Truckin' Machine' third. 'Tickled Pink' led 'El Principio' by 2 3/8 points
at the start of the final race over an Olympic course, but in moderate winds
North finished first while 'Tickled Pink' dropped to fourth to give 'El Principio'
the NAYRU Championship by less than a point"
