Congrats on the new boat

Congrats on the new boat and as a fellow Ericson owner welcome to the viking clan. If you have not already you should get active on the Ericson owner site. It's a great resource with a lot of very knowledgable owners in regular attendance including some ex-employees from Ericson who know those boats down to every last drop of resin.

Hey MikeyB,
Come on over to BB dock in LB & stop by my E35 to say Hi. It's easy to recognize with the new Ericson logo on the front of the coach house and on the mainsail cover (My sweetie is such an artiste!)

Just go sailing. Remember what Captain Ron said, "If anythings gonna happen, it's gonna happen out there". Congratulations on the new boat, Ericsons are nice.

Great Boat

Hi Mike, we've had our 76 Ericson 35 mkIII for 2 years now and sailed over 2,500 miles. Currently doing hard time preparing to cross the Atlantic. Let me know if you have any questions, and have fun at Catalina.

Easy way to tell the difference between the original E35, sometimes called the Ericson-Alberg, is the shape/slope of the stern. The Alberg design was from the 60's and has a long overhang and 'traditional' looking transom. There are some cool stories on the net about the Ericson appropriation of the Alberg hull plug. Fun to read late at night... true or not?? The other distinction is the similarity to a Columbia 36 cabin top: they are identical!
