I am not aware of the Sea Raven. The story I heard about my boat was that the original people who built it bought the Skookum mold which had been sitting for 10+ years in a lot in Port Townsend, after the original builder had gone bust, and built my boat as a custom one off Trawler. It was originally built as a power boat, and had a poorly designed sailing rig added to it many years later. It has a lot of miles under its keel for a power boat. I believe it has been through the Panama canal and cruised for years in the Caribbean, Eastern Seaboard, South America, then back to Seattle. Then another trip in the early 2000 with the second owner from Vancouver to New Zealand and back. Then a third trip From Vancouver to Mexico, to Fiji, where I bought it. From Fiji, I brought it back to Hawaii, then Anacortes WA.
