I also sail out of Milwaukee. I bought my 1971 Ericson 27 in 1988 as my first boat and I love it. I agree that she slow in light winds and my wife likes it that way. I however, prefer winds to be 8+. then she'll do 4+kts on up to maybe 6.5 and sails great. A few years ago I converted it to wheel steering which make it much nicer to sail as now I'm facing the rest of my crew and its much easier to motor with. I think my boat is hull #35. They didn't assign hull identification numbers until 1973.

GySgt I have sailed 2 at our sailing club. One with a wheel and one with a tiller. They were hard to reverse with a lot of prop walk, and in light air, they served better as a drinking platform. However when the wind picks up they are great.

k1vsk Had one as our first boat. Great boat to learn on, very forgiving, much better constructed than comparibly priced and sized production boats. About the only thing I found frustrating was that it seemed as slow as dry wall but am sure that's a function of it's wetted surface with it's cutaway semi-full keel. On the plus side, no keel bolts and keel seperation to worry about, relatively large cockit for a 27 and tracks like it's on rails. No history of hull blisters but deck leaks from poorly placed chainplates are frequently a source of water penetration in the deck but that is easily checked and repaired if needed.

FrankLanger You will likely get more replies if you post this on the ericson yacht owners organization. You can do a search, but it's something like "ericsonyachts.org"
It's a great site with lots of information.

Anyone here had experience with the E 27 late '70's, early '80's.
