Diligence...as far as I know there is no Ericson specific forum. There is an e-mail list for Ericson owners as well as the archive of that list under the resources tab. Is that what you are referring to?
I've been visiting sailnet since 2002 and while it was great for a while...it dwindled to nothing and has been really built back up over the last 6 months and I think it is better than ever. But...I may have been missing something on the old board. Lots of quality posts here daily IMHO but NOT particularly boat specific and they don't seem to be too focused on selling merchandise here now. Pls. confirm what you are talking about as I am at a loss to identify a specific Ericson forum other than the mail lists which sailnet merely provides access to.
