Re: Ericson 36 RH or Ericson 34x?

If the 34X you are considering is the one on Granville Island, be aware that it is an electric conversion so it won't make much of an island cruiser. It's also pretty pricey for a 40 year old, obsolete race boat. There's one in Portland with the original Atomic Bomb for 1/2 the price. It's been for sale for years too so it may be very negotiable as they say.

Very racy looking boats - I've always liked those Mull style extreme stinger sterns, even though they don't help performance. A bit like tail fins on 50's cars I guess.

I imagine the interior is pretty limited by that swoopy almost flush deck.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
