    Wiring & Engine Detail, part 2

    These photos show the Halon bottle in place, and also a much better look at the inside of the compartment where the meter and terminal strip are mounted.
    As an "extra" there is a shot of the new...

    Liveaboard Prep 1: Removal of Wine Rack (gasp) pt. 1

    I think everyone with Ericsons of a certain size and vintage is intimately acquainted with the signature wine rack, though I don't think I've ever seen any pictures of a boat here with wine in the...

    Re-Re-Re Re-Rig

    Music and lyrics by Max Headroom. So the rig is down and out on a greenhouse table where I can work on it in relative comfort. Good thing too, because there is a thick layer of snow and re-re-re...

    New Hour Meter & Halon Status light (part 1)

    After removing the old (crumbling lens) Halon status light in its escutcheon plate, I needed to install a new one. The purpose of that light is to see if the Halon extinguisher has discharged,...

    Starboard (under) Side Deck Reveal

    Here are some pix of the underside of the starb. deck above the galley. I opened up this area two years ago to get at the wiring that goes thru there to the next area aft, the overhead in the hanging...

    Ericson 29 - what to watch for?

    Ericson 29 - what to watch for?

    Sounds to me like youʻre familiar with this stuff, done impressive diligence, the subject boat is far under your theoretical budget, and you can

    Lefiell?

    I had heard they got out of marine spars, but (according to Cruiser's Forum) as recently as 2014 they were answering phones and selling spar parts

    Ericson 29 - what to watch for?

    Lefiell?

    Geoff,

    When I saw your webbing design for a closure, I thought about a piece of marine canvas (Sunbrella) held up with twist studs along
