Cool Price of Ericson 32

Hi Canadianseamonkey
Thanks for your reponse.
No, this E32 is not mint by fare. The boat is very clean inside and seams solid outside from the conversation that I had with the seller. Most of all, the seller has been very belcoming. He has answered all questions very well to the best of his knowledge, and stated that he will get back to me with better/more detail information. I have also found a surveyor that called me back and told me that he would be happy to take a quick look at the boat to see if the boat is worth a survey because he is not fare away. I did not have the chance to speak to in person for any possible charge, but from the message. I do not think he will charge me or at best little to take a quick look.
The price is less than what you have stated for the one that you looked at few yrs ago.
Thanks

If you said where you were located, or where the boat was located, someone could probably recommend a good surveyor, should the boat be considered good enough to warrant one.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Justg a quick 2 cent's worth: E32 will be just fine for the two of you - a bit snug for 4 on an overnight but OK for daysails - impossible for 6 on an overnight (unless you are all VERY friendly!) and crowded on daysails. But that's the case for any boat that size. For coastal work in the NE she's fine, and she could take you on some offshore jaunts if in proper condition.

Red face ? Many changes E32 in early 70' ?

I agree life is too often too short or should I say shorter than we might think.
Eating dessert first is always a good idea, but I try to begin cooking my main meal at the same time.

I can't find if the E32 73's keel is bolted or none boted (glass over)?
Wondering if anyone knows?

& I also have read in the early 70's Ericson tried out many different things from year to year (including) the inside support for the chainplate (some w/ and other w/o) Is it true?

Thanks

Ericson 32 has a fully encapsulated lead keel. In other words, they built the hull around the lead balast so that it is fully integrated with no seams or keel bolts.
