Rave On is a two owner boat and has always been in fresh water and at the same marina. This particular 37-footer was designed to meet the IOR rule as well as double as a family cruiser.  The designer William Shaw writes  “I designed this boat for sailors who wanted to race their boats in IOR and PHRF fleets, then jettison the crew, pick up the wife and children and go cruising”  (perhaps he didn’t know that the wife and kids also can go racing). He goes on to write “The hull design was state of the art, if you will, and she was furnished with a comfortable, though lightweight interior”.  The boat was launched in 1981 with a total production of 42 units of which this is hull #34. The hull is lined with spruce and hickory, the cabin sole is teak ad holly and the head and master stateroom are enclosed with wooden doors.  The headroom below is 6’3”  The cockpit measures 8’6” and seats 6-8 adults on comfortably contoured seats.  In fact, Shaw proabably designed the most ergonomic cockpit seats of any designer drawing production boats according to a review from Practical Sailor.  The helmsman sits atop a rounded seat while under power, then moves to seats in the cockpit corners for sightlines to the telltales.  The original owner raced the boat on Lake Superior and hence the additional rigging. The 2nd owner added the roller furler, new transmission (2014), new starter (2019), a complete hull paint job (2015) and a new custom Ship Shape winter cover (2017). Rave On has a double-spreader keel stepped mast. Sleeps 7 in a V-berth, two settees, two pilot berths and a quarter berth.
