Pass on it, you don't want to get into a project but that is exactly what this boat is, there's thousands of boats out there you can find one for the price you're looking

Re: Mast replacement Ericson 27'

Since mast in E27 is keel stepped, finding a good replacement will be tricky and expensive. I would check with a rigger to see if the old mast can be repaired. If not, I would pass on this boat.

I have a Cal 25 mast available, but it is only 29.8' (about 3' short) in West Michigan.

Re: Mast replacement Ericson 27'

Ya have a few feelers out in edmonton /calgary ,and Vancouver area,hope to find a mast not to far away,should maybe check the okanagen. Any idea if a Ericsson mast that is 6 inches shorter than a s27.9 would work ok?. I suppose would have to rerig the stays and such,how much difference in sails?...Ralph. And why is this thread in a different format and blue?
