    Considering buying a 36c, please help.

    I am looking at purchasing an Ericson 36c. I am mostly interested in long distance cruising and Bluewater passages. I need a boat that can cruise the Caribbean, and possibly cross oceans, safely. I'm not looking for anything that is super fast, nor do I have much desire to race. It looks like a solid boat and a comfortable liveaboard which are both requirements, but I haven't been able to find much information on the 36c's long distance cruising capabilities. Looks like the rig is a little short but like I said I'm not looking to go anywhere fast. If anyone has experience with Ocean crossings or long passages, say East Coast to Bermuda it would be very helpful.

    E36 cutter

    Hey!

    We are from Canada and we just bought one (in fact the survey is scheduled for next Friday ).
    Will tell you next year as we plan to sail to Cuba, St Marteens...for a full stop in Belize..
    Draft is 5.7' and bow is 12'...Not perfect for the reefs but with a good dinghy...

    Cheers,
    Chris

    I own a 36C and live aboard. There are documents availible here on the download tab, that have the original sales brochure, along with sea trial reports. She is a blue water boat.

    Hello James,

    Many thanks for your feed back. Just got the doc!

    Maybe you know...I had to send my stay-sail for repair and the guy said me that I better get a new one.
    That's fine as the survey told me the same thing
    I have a question for you...Do i must get a new sail built in 8 Oz or something less expensive will do the job?
    Asking to myself and I really don't know - Any suggestion?

    Anyway...Thank you again for getting back to me!
    Cheers,
    Chris
