  2. Boat Review Forum
    Hello all, I had decided upon an Ericson 29 as our first cruising boat, but unfortunately it got away from us as the sellers got greedy and accepted another offer the day before we were to hand over the cash. As there are not many of these around (I've only seen two for sale in the past year in...

    Lots of boats in the 28' to 32' range have tabernacle rigs in Mission Bay San Diego and Santa Cruz California. I have an Ericson 28 with such a rig. If your not familiar with this particular, common set up, this post may not make sense to you. The bridge I need to go under for ocean day...

    I am looking for the right yard on Texoma to do a moderate overhaul on an Ericson 32-200. I know Valiant Yachts are no longer built at Cedar Mills since 2011, but wondering if Cedar Mills is still the best choice. Any views?

  6. Sailboat Design and Construction
    Saw this Ericson in the yard the other day. I'm under the impression Ericsons have encapsulated keels and was struck by the narrow profile of this one. If this keel is encapsulated, it's hard for me to believe the narrow profile of the FRP could take the lateral stress induced by the led while...

    What I wouldn't give for a Friendship 40, and a 3 month babysitter, so my wife and I could cruise the east coast for a summer. I guess the much anticipated Alerion 41 would do... ;) I'll settle for working on my beautiful Ericson 27 and catching a few sailing hours here and there for a couple...

    Hypothetical at this time... assuming equally good condition and price, which would you pick over the other, if offshore sailing were part of your plans? - and why? I can certainly think of other boats that I would rate higher for offshore but (insert some saying about if wishes were horses)...
  10. Gear & Maintenance
    A young friend just bought a Ericson 29 with an encapsulated keel. A surveyor (post purchase!) noticed a crack in the glass on top of the keel, in the second (forward) access hatch. He had a theory that maybe some water got in and froze making the crack, but admitted he didn't have a clue. Don't...
