For Sale

1976 Chaser 29 Sloop
Doug Peterson Design
Loa 29’6
Beam 10’ 2”
Draft 5’7”
This has been a great boat us.  She sails and handles like nothing else I have ever sailed on.  My family is prepared to move on to another boat at this time so we have decided to put Shenanigans on the market while we look. 
Shenanigans has a large compliment of sails as the previous owner was a racer: 2 mains, 2 spinnakers with sock for easy launch and retrieval,  stay sail,  a storm sail, The #1 & #2 Genoas are Mylar, also equipped with 4 other Dacron Genoas of various weight.  
It is currently equipped with a racing foil but I have all the parts and pieces to convert to a Hood roller furling for an additional $1000.
Powered by an inboard Atomic 4 PVC mod installed.
1 year on anti-skid re-surface.   
 A lot of updates have been done over the past 3 years to make her a bit more cushy for cruising. Interior needs a few trim pieces here and there but nothing major and a bit of cleaning to spiff her up.  She has 2 alcohol burning stoves.  Ice box and sleeps 4.  V berth up front and 2 quarter berths towards the back.
Electronics include: Depth sounder, VHS Radio, Garmin GPS. 
 Also comes with its own steel cradle. 
Asking $9500 as she sits or $10,500 with new in box fuller system you install. 
Boat is currently in Douglas, MI covered for the winter but we can get aboard if you want to take a look.
