SlowButSteady is on a distinguished road
A friend had an Ericson 35-2 (the model to which you seem to be referring; I think his was a 1972). He had to replace the main bulkhead as it was rotten due to leaky chainplates. He also found a rather disturbing crack in the stem, just below the waterline, where the two halves of the hull were not properly bonded together (he fixed it with a long weekend's worth of grinding and fiberglass work). But the real pisser was that he lost the mast when the forestay chainplate failed.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
