Thanks for the info. I checked out Fossfoams website and couldnt decide if their product would hold up.
The boat needs to cosmetic cleanup (buff and waxing on hull) as far as I can tell.
He is selling it for $3500.
He said that the bolt worked loose. He removed the tiller and then returned a couple of days later to re-attach it and the rudder was gone. I dont know how the rudder is afixed on a ericson so I am taking his explanation with a grain of salt.
