Got Our First Sailboat!
My wife and I just bought our first sail boat! Its an '76 Ericson 27. We are very excited and so is our little boy, Dobbs.
"The Teacher's Pet" had quite a package including two mains and four head sails (storm, jib, and two genoas). Four-stroke mercury outboard (fired right up), plumbing working fine. Electric working fine. threw in a auto tiller and humingbird 300dx. The rigging is within a few years old, and looks good. Got PFD's and horns and flares and the lot. I could go on, but ya'll get the idea.
What it needs is to be hauled this spring for bottom paint, no blisters, but why risk not doing it. Cabin windows need to be re-bedded. I could probably use a better tiller handle as well, as the current one seems much to small. Also toying with a renameing, but don't need any wrath of Poseidon so maybe not.
Can't wait to post some pics!
