Re: Ericson 27

There is a reason that the tiller is placed where it is. In the attached diagram note where the engine and propeller are and the shape of the hull. There wasn't much choice other than to angle the rudder which moves the tiller forward. You are comptemplating a 40 year old boat and design. Think long and hard before you start dropping serious coin into making it something that it's not.
