They are usually very accurate, but sometimes the may get models listed wrong. I had an old Ericson that had a mark 1 & 2 version. You had to know the I,P,E, and J to figure out which model you were looking at. Take a look, again, I'm pretty sure this is your boat. Sailrite has a wealth of information for anyone trying to compare sail areas for different boats. Hope this is some help.
Will do... thats one of the few I didnt check.. and yes mine is referred to as as the 42 sometimes as its 41' 8" LOD but 45 overall and thats what the J mesurment would be calculated out to include the sprit.

Thanks
