    Flotation for the Dinghy

    A good dinghy needs to serve many masters. I have no inflatable or outboard. No emergency life raft, either. So my 60-pound mahogany plywood Eastport pram needs to be a jack of all trades--sailboat,...

    Ericson Tee Shirts

    I would be interested in several E27 shirts if you could add some info identifying the logo.
    Something like "Ericson Sailboats"
