The Ericson 32-3 was manufactured after 1984, as a redesign of the prior Ericson 32. It is slightly longer and wider, with a new underwater profile, and is constructed using the innovative Tri-axial Force Grid. Note that earlier models are referred to as Ericson 32-2, or Ericson 32-1. The Ericson 32-200 is an iteration subsequent to the 32-3, mostly for the purpose of moving the owner's cabin and head aft. The boat is an excellent all-around performer with exceptional interior design and execution. It sails equally under main or job alone. The fine entry and low initial stability make for ease to windward in a seaway. The boat does not surf. Reef main at 18 knots. A great deal of specific information is below at Thelonious Blog.

After haunting sailnet and some others I purchased a 1992 P23 named HotCha, in April of 2014. ZERO sailing experiance. Have had a great time fixing up and learning to sail on this little boat. I'm guessing others calling the boat "tender" are refering to the amount of heel, which I find to be a exhilarating. I fully believe for learing to sail on the small ponds and lakes of Iowa I could not of picked a better boat for the money. Precision has been a great company to deal with when I've needed parts and had stuipd questions.

I bought this fixer-upper in June, 2014. Fixed it up in Cobourg harbour for a few weeks while living on it... what a blast! The previous owner did not remove the lower shrouds while lowering the mast... These shrouds line up with the center-line of the mast , so as the mast is pivoted on the bolt, the shrouds try to hold the mast from leaning. Some twit reefed the mast down and damaged the mast... one mans blunder is another mans boon. Sailed it around 1000 Islands and camped out until Mid October. Now, I have a wonderful little pocket cruiser I can't wait to throw into the wind again.

I have had my Georgian 23 for 4 years now. I purchased it in Godrich Ontario and trucked it down to Hamilton. "Sweet Georgia" (number "25" as indicated by the original main sail) has been a great boat to learn on. Are there any other 23's in the Hamilton or lake Ontario area? If so we should all go for a sail sometime this summer.

Mine is a 1980 although hull number says '79. I DO NOT have a steel cross beam under the compression post. I know my bilge is different from later models as it has a step on the aft end. from amidships forward it is only 4" deep. Aft it is about 12" but get narrower. The shower drains to the bilge. To help drainage I had to drill a few holes in the huge glob of fiberglass and resin surrounding the mast support that was blocking the shower to bilge drain. I'm 6'2" and barefoot I'm good in the cabin. All bunks are 6'6" so I can sleep anywhere. All things considered, it is the best sailboat for me to cruise for a weekend or week. I added marine A/C in the cabin and refer in the icebox. Roller furling to make things easy and when the wind comes up... 10 to 15+ I can still bring home a trophy even with all the added weight.

I have had my potter 4 years, built in 2000, I sail mostly Delaware Bay and have had it "outside" more like an a few times. I always feel safe and I know the boat can handle much more than i can. I have added some additional support back to the deck hardware and larger cleats, new pop up rudder, new outboard bracket, VHF radio. It has cdi roller furling so everything can be done from the cockpit. Spending nights on it is comfortable. I love my "Petrel" and can't think of any downside to the W19

I bought the Koralle Jr. for $495 brand-new in 1970-71. It was the West German version of this boat. It was my first boat and I learned to sail with it. I would highly recommend this boat for a beginner as it was very forgiving. I never capsized the boat except on purpose. It had a tendency to "turn-turtle" when it capsized, but was fairly easy to right. The cockpit is not self-draining, so a bucket to empty water is a must. The hull is a little fragile, and "holed" a few times when it hit something. The elastic cords that hold the storage bin doors will stretch when wet and not keep the doors in place. The hull tends to pound when under sail into a chop. My recollection was that it had 72 square feet of sail. I've seen 82SF in other posts and do not know if my recollection is faulty, or they added some sail area. My boat felt a little under-powered once I learned to sail, but was reasonably competitive in it's class (12 foot dinghy's), but could not keep up with other slightly larger boats such as Lido 14's, Coronado 15, Finn's etc. Laser's were just coming out when I sold my Koralle, but I believed a Laser would be a faster boat. I usually sailed on a lake, but took it (in a group of other boats; a West-Wight Potter and a Columbia 26) from Channel Islands Harbor to Anacapa Island several times. While that was fun, I always felt the boat was a little unsubstantial for this trip. In summary; a good starter boat, but experienced sailors may want more boat. Enjoy.
