kp44.org — The official website of the Peterson Cutter Owner's Group
In 2005 Bud and Nita, longtime members and supporters of the Peterson Cutter group, finally finished their refit job (as if is every refinished). Jeff Stander visited them just before they left from Honolulu, Hawaii for their passage south on their wonderfully rebuilt and refitted Kelly-Peterson 44 Passage.
Discovery of a cold joint problem in the deck delayed them for a while, but they are now, I hope, happily cruising. I was mightily impressed with all the clever improvements that they have made in their boat, including their signature hard dodger. This is a labor of love and years (and lots of BOAT units I'm sure). These photos only tell part of the story.
