Journey of a new owner, Ericson 35-2

I'd like to share my experiences as a prospective buyer, then a buyer, then the new owner of an Ericson 35, Mark II.

    This photo is a little harder to understand, so I'll explain. First, it should be rotated to the right 90 degrees, but I couldn't get that to happen. The left side of the picture should be up. What I am showing here is the large black exhaust hose leaving the Vetus waterlock component and heading vertically up and to starboard to begin its anti-reflux loop, above the waterline, in the ...

    This is the start of the exhaust system. This is a photo into the engine compartment, which is mounted center cabin in my boat, under a settee, just port of midline. I am looking astern and downward, The starboard wall of the compartment is removed. You see the silver exhaust manifold in the foreground, with a large cylindrical vertical muffler immediately behind. I assume this muffler ...

  5. Visit from Albuquerque

    Had a visit this weekend from Zach Bingham and his wife. Zach has posted here a few times, and found me through this site. He's got some great stories I have asked him to post here. He got a very run down 35-2 in Vermont, built a trailer for it in Albuquerque, then made the 5000 mi trip to haul it back to Albuqerque. He sent me some great videos of almost completely tearing out the inside to start fresh. I think he has a good chance of making it!
