Magpie6642 Thanks Marty. I'll keep watching the boat sale sites just in case he wants to sell it here rather than sail it all the way home.

blt2ski Welcome to those down under.

I seem to recall one Aussie that just got done sailing an Erickson down that way from SF bay, Simon. Some one correct me if I am wrong. Not sure of the size tho.

may want to look him up on here too!

TheMutt Hi Magpie6642

I don't know much about the Ericson, I'll have a look around, the 38 does appear good.

Happy sails.

Magpie6642 Yes it's not good at the moment... I wish we had acted on this 6 months ago.

chall03 Welcome to Sailnet Magpie from a fellow Aussie! best of luck with your plans. Its a bummer about the exchange rate at the moment. We were seriously looking at the bringing a boat back from the states last year but now we are not so convinced.

Magpie6642 We are enjoying the hunt for the next one... sad that we need to part with this one. The ericsons certainly are beautiful boats.... ah well maybe we can figure out how to get a E38 from the US at no cost!

Faster Welcome, Magpie.. some very good friends sail an Ericson 32 and they absolutely love it.

Enjoy it and the hunt for the "next one"!

Thanks for the welcome folks.

Thanks for the welcome folks.

We did see the Pacific Seacraft 380 advertised John. They look like a nice boat as well ... except the prices seem to be about $US150,000 whereas the Ericsons are about $80,000 which is closer to our price bracket.

I'll put something about the Chieftains on the "buying a Boat"

Anyway, thanks again. I'll stay in touch.
