    All of the original exterior woodwork was beyond saving when we purchased our Ericson 25CB, and the companionway hatch was no exception. It was severly worn, had cracks that extended all the way...

    E-26 sugar scoop

    In order to get the fitment to the transom perfect it was necessary to do the initial lay-up directly on the transom. So the mold was built in place out of 2x4 with a 1/4" ciramica (dry erase) board...

    In search of mainsail

    Hi all,
    looking for a used good or better condition mainsail for E36-RH. Thought I would check here. Bacon sails, North pre-owned and other searches

    Nasty aluminum bolts on my nice boat

    Drill and use an Easy-out from above. Should be no problem.

    Good Way, Maybe not

    More than likely you will have to try to drive them out from below. They shouldn't be threaded into the base. They were likely sealed when installed,
