Ericson 35 or 27?

I have just sold my 78 Yamaha 25II with the goal of a more room below and in the cockpit so the wife and a guest or two could be comfortable. I had been looking in the 27-28 foot range at Cal 2-27, Cat 27 or erickson 27 or 28. The lack of Cal 2-27s and my preference for the percieved quality of the Ericsons has be zeroing in on a nice 72 Ericson 27 the the owner has maintained quite well.

Now an old sailing pal has introduced me to a club member with a well-maintained 74 Ericson 35. Oh my. This boat has had a blistering problem which has been addressed on two former occasions yet the blisters have returned. I have always loved the Ericson 35 but am concerned about this problem on an otherwise pristine boat.

Does anyone have experience with this? I think I 'd love the larger boat but don't know much about the history of this problem on the 74 Ericson 35.

Any advice or comments will be appreciated.
