Sure. It was built, along with its little sister the EH 25, at the Ryder plant in RI. This is the same shop that build Southern Cross (and many other) boats. The EH owner was basically using them as a contract operation and I think it''s safe to say this boat franchise was never refined, marketed nor the build process managed in a way we''d all like to see. But the basic structures were soundly spec''d, I always thought, and the design very (overly) traditional.

I don''t think it would fall apart on you, but I doubt it would be an exciting boat to sail.
