My brand new 1974 Ericson 27
I am brand new to sailing. My wife wanted to learn how to sail and maybe purchase a sailboat. I however at the time talked her out of buying a sailboat and we purchased a 26ft. older Deck boat for the whole family. But at the same time found a great deal on this Ericson Sailboat. I surprised her with the sailboat on Christmas. She was very surprised. For the most part the most part the boat appears to be in great shap. I was advised of a couple chainplates that needed repair and the Jib sail. Its currently moored but I plan on moving it to a Marina soon.
I tell ya there was nothing like just sitting out in the Gulf water inlet having a cold beverage with a view of other sailboats. I am thinking I am goin to love this sailboat life. Our plans are to start taking some sailing lessons, and staying in the inlet while we learn and fix up the boat.
