Cool Our 1980 ericson 38'

Hope this is similar to those other helpful support organizations, you know, AA, GA, it's going to be ok, really, we can help

Hello, our names are John & Anny, and we simultaneously bumped our heads (hard apparently) when we woke up yesterday, and by the end of the day we were owners of a 1980 ericson 38'. I had it hauled and surveyed yesterday, and it seems it doesn't need too much work, just; blister repairs and new paint on the bottom; new standing rigging (and maybe running rigging); some sail repairs; fuel level indicator that doesn't have cooked wires; the head to be connected to the holding tank; a bilge pump that actually sucks ; a working stove; an emergency tiller; leaky hatch cover repairs; new non-skid, and elbow grease to shine up the deck.

Any useful comments regarding addressing our initial short list are certainly welcome.

I think I'll work on the head first, as we'll be needing it quite a bit while working to fix everything else.

Re: Our 1980 ericson 38'

when you get to the non skid
use the natural corn husk kitty litter formula , I did it 2 yrs ago and it is the best
other than that go and sail anchor out 3 to 4 times per month , use the boat while you are fixing it up .....

Congratulations. I've always liked that boat. Great lines, nice interior. It will be worth the work.

Re: Our 1980 ericson 38'

I'll wait to post photos until I've had the bottom repaired & painted, replaced the rigging, cleaned and stitched the sails, and shined her up. Perhaps, then, I'll post before & after photos.
