    I have an ericson27 as well and as Mark says, there is space under that "head ledge". Being a tentative driller of holes in my boat for fear of sinking it, i would probably first look for an access from the locker where the tanks sit in the v-berth, thru the bulkhead into the space under the...

    Buffer woes

    I’ve been trying my hand at buffing my hull. Using finesse it as hull is in decent shape. But I find the Makita buffer sticking and jumping, hard to control. What might I be doing wrong? I’ve tried more and less material. Higher, lower speeds. (And not a wuss so don’t go there lol). Trying...

    Bottom paint on Blister repairs

    I pulled my e27 for some early spring work. After 22 months in the water the bottom was generally in excellent shape. I was dumbfounded actually by the good condition. However, in a few places where I made blister repairs in the past, the WM ablative bottom paint wore off down to the epoxy...

    Chesapeake Ericson club

    For the next Chesapeake club meet up, I believe Pat is the guy to select the location. I live in Hampton and am not familiar with Annapolis and Eastport other than as an infrequent visitor. I likely won't make too many of these meeting simply because of the distance. But I'll do my best!

    minor correction, e27 owner at the chesapeake meet up is Jay, not Pat (although my parents apparently thought about naming me Patrick, so you could be on to something). It was a great time. I learned a lot from you all. Looking forward to the next meeting. Jay

    WANTED: Bimini and cockpit cushions '78 E27

    I have an E27 with a bimini. And I have love-hate relationship with it. It came with the boat and I have looked into modifying it, but I always have something more important to fix or improve. I love it more than i hate it. The summer heat in the mid Atlantic region can be stifling, and it...
