My wife Maureen bought the boat for $1100 as a project boat for me to get back into some local racing.  She was stripped and badly damaged waiting for a new home.

She was originally bought new by Craig Rastello.  Under Craig’s ownership she was sailed in Atlanta on Lake Lanier and in Destin. Craig is a CPA in Cocoa and has become a regular member of the crew and is coach for Susan Jackson's ladies team on J-Peas. - Paul Anstey-

I was the original owner of "J-Peas.."  Boat was delivered in June 1978, and was originally named "Boogaloo".  The first race sailed was the J-24 Midwinters in January 1979 (this was the second J-24 Midwinteres).  Sailed at Lake Lanier Sailing Club 1980-1982, Milwaukee Yacht Club 1982-1983.  1983 to 1985 boat was kept in Ft. Walton Beach.  It was in a marina when a labor day hurricane went through and was severely damaged on the Starboard side.  Repairs were made on a farm in Harpersville, Alabama and the boat was renamed "Hurricane Debris."  Boat was chartered out in Milwaukee 1986-1988, and again sailed at Lake Lanier Sailing Club 1989-1991.  Sat on a trailer from 1992-2007.  Was sold to a guy with no sailing experience in 2007.  When he moved to Denver he put it out on US 1 with a for sale sign, which is where Maureen found the deal. 


That's a brief history of the World, Part I for J-Peas. -Craig Rastello-
