I have just got a 1975 Ericson 25 with a drop center board. I have always had a power boat since i was young, however This is my first sail boat. I do know how to sail, but never have owned one. I wish to obtain as much inf o on the 25ft Ericson as I can.. like.. how do these hold up in 2-3ft seas? and should I know of anything "special", Is Ericson a good company? Anything thing I should Try to stay away from replacing? And, does anyone know the true draft on this boat. Any help would indeed help me out. Thanks.
