    Ericson 38 for sale - BEST OFFER

    I am going to sell my 1981 Ericson 38 on a "best offer" basis. It has a few cosmetic issues, but has a yard-maintained 32HP diesel that runs perfectly, a transmission with 5 hours on it (replaced transmission, propeller shaft, bearings and engine mounts in 2015, just before her final haul). But the reverse transom, after 38 years, needs to be Awlgripped, and there are some stains on the interior trunk cabin, a Benmar autopilot that needs service, and custom cotton velour upholstery that should be replaced (still have all the like-new extra fabric needed to replace it, if you don't have little kids) .

    But she has a fabulous Force 10 propane stove with 2 recertified/re-valved 10lb tanks, Datamarine Corinthian instruments with spares, an Adler-Barbour "Cold Machine" that tested to 13F, totally replaced fresh water and bilge pumps, big Motorola alternator, insulated backstay for ham radio, completely Aerex-foamcore replaced balsa in deck around mast and anchor well cover, and more. Even the rare cockpit cushions! The boat is located in New Bedford, MA.

    I'd planned to launch her in 2016, which then became 2017 as I played a bigger and bigger role in supporting my severely ill sister and her 24/7 aides. She passed away on Easter, and I've just lost any interest in doing the cosmetic fixes, and need to unload my beloved "Mel's Angel. My son and daughter moved to Asheville NC - no place to sail her. Someone is going to get a deal. Email me at melsnyder at gmail and we can talk. Interior pix at https://www.flickr.com/gp/melsnyder/4Mg583.

    Sorry for your losses; both of your sister and enthusiasm. Life is about our connections to others. May you find the connections and peace she would have wanted you to have.

    Thanks, Tin Kicker. She died of the disease featured a week ago on Sixty Minutes, FTD. My peace will be found in my children, grandchildren and partner of 15+ years.
