not sure what record your referring to. folks have sailed cal 20s, an oday daysailor, and other assorted flotsam to hawaii and calif from japan. heck, you could float a log that distance(btw someone did "sail" a log from washington state to hawaii way back in the 70s.) i even sailed a yamaha 33 from japan to hawaii years ago. still, imho ericson boats are not as good as sabre boats. btw: i would not own either one.
