Rawson Cruiser

Is anyone familiar with Rawson boats? I am looking for information on Ron Rawson cruisers. I know they are a well known NW commercial fishing boat and they are well known for their 30' sail boats. They built 15, 32' cruisers and 20, 38' cruisers, but that is all the information I can find on their "trawler" type pleasure boats. If anyone has any information or history with one of these "cruisers" please let me know. I am in the process of purchasing this boat and want more information. Thanks

Rawson Cruiser

Look up Chris Foster under "list all users" above. He hasn't been posting for some time.Perhaps you can draw him out. Here is a very nice Rawson fish boat from Petersburg.
Now that I look at the picture better I think this may not be the same boat (Rawson).

RE: Rawson Cruiser

SD,
Where are you at?* Maybe when I get the boat and bring it from Sitka to Kodiak, I can swing by and see ya.* I would love any local knowledge of PWS area.* I plan on going from Sitka to Yakutat, to Cordova, to Seward then on to Kodiak.* I will stop in more places along the way to sight see and to wait for weather.* Any must see places and or places to watch out for will be greatly appreciated.* I have been all over SE Alaska, Yakutat, and Cordova but it was on a CG Buoy Tender so I didnt get much exploring in.

RE: Rawson Cruiser

I'm wondering about your status also. The boat I thought you were looking at was the well known Roberts. See prev pic on this thread. I was looking at one last winter** ...a 36' Roberts built as a trawler. I think Rawson built more pleasure boats. I've seen many.
