    Swing Keel Operation

    I'll just add that you should need the winch to winch the centerboard up, and then you can cleat it. To lower the centerboard, once you uncleat the line, the centerboard should just fall down. If it doesn't, either the board may be swollen and/or there may be gunk in the trunk preventing it...

    Bought some Ericson parts from a lead scrapper

    Mordust - no I did not see any other stanchions or bases.

    Bought some Ericson parts from a lead scrapper

    I don't have anything close to a marine chandlery near me. Even the local West Marine closed. I bought my Ericson 25 last month, but I still search searchtempest for Ericson sailboat now and then to see what pops up. I saw a new listing for various sailboat parts, including parts from an...

    Fynspray WS 64 lever arm disassembly

    A few updates - I mistyped the product number - it is a WS 63, not a 64. I struck out at Imtra and never got through to Fisheries Supply, but I had a lovely conversation with Anita with White Star Products in Aukland New Zealand this evening and I think I'm on the right track. She's going to...

    Fynspray WS 64 lever arm disassembly

    I used a hack saw to saw off part of the broken plastic bushing in order to pry out/unscrew the rest, and a sawzall would let me get the good used bushing off. But it wouldn't work to install it on the new arm. I'll try Imtra and Fisheries Supply.

    Fynspray WS 64 lever arm disassembly

    My Ericson 25 came with a Fynspray WS 64 hand pump for the galley sink in unknown condition. Removal of the pump and disassembly revealed a pump in surprisingly excellent condition with one substantial exception. The gaskets are all pliable and there is no corrosion. But the plastic fitting...

    Our E25 Hull #377 purchase and maiden voyage

    Here are a few pictures of her. I have a hint of regret not taking one more day to, among other tasks, wax the full bootstripe to get it back to the powder blue color rather than its current scum color - I did a spot near the rudder just to confirm it will clean up and we will buff the entire...

    Our E25 Hull #377 purchase and maiden voyage

    As I mentioned in my for sale/wanted post, I posted in early July to see if anyone knew of an E25 on a trailer for sale, as we had finally decided to make the jump from a daysailer to a cabin boat and an E25 had been on my want list ever since I discovered the Oystercatcher refit blog about 4...

    Wanted: Ericson 25 on a trailer

    I will start a new post at some point on another sub-forum, but I couldn't be happier to close the loop on this thread and type that I towed E25 C/B Hull #377 home to me on Monday/Tuesday, and we should splash her at her new home on Sunday. I feel slight remorse for removing her from such...
