    Stern Access 30+ Part II

    In response to comments on the previous blog entry. Yes! Access to the quadrant is easy. You do have to lie on your back, but you can scooch right up under it. I constructed a shelf to fit over the...

    Stern Access 30+

    [FONT=&amp]I have been meaning to post this for awhile but only recently took some pics. The aft end of the 30+ is only accessible through the lazarette. It's not a comfortable space. Add a spare...

    E29 Starboard Side Storage (Part 2)

    What fools are we to try to force rectangular furniture into our round boats? More properly, these things should be some sort of honeycomb structure, growing organically from the hull while lending...

    Galley Extension E29

    Last winter and spring, I committed a few more projects / abominations on my boat. These next few posts confess to some interior modifications that I have been thinking about for a few years and...

    New Dodger O-34

    The new dodger is on. The new clutches and larger winches are in place.
    This is a newer fabric, "RECacril" that is rated better than "Sunbrella" for weave integrity and QC. Since cost is about the...

    Ericson 35-3 for new captain!

    Thanks Tin! It was a fun project until I got down to the trim. So many fussy angles on a boat. Shame there’s not a Chesapeake Ericson club (that I

    water pooling

    Spinnaker Pole track for E32

    There are two ways to gybe a symettrical spinnaker. Dip pole and end to end. I always use the end to end on boats to about 30'. I tried it once on
