    calling all 36C

    rdder clunk Ya we had that but it was an easy fix, also I helped a friend in Trinadad with his. We took the rudder off, you have to take the the steering quad off, and also loosen or remove the cables, just a tight job. While you are there check that the cable pulleys are properly attached...

    Freeze Warning Advice

    Serious offshore cruising

    Cruising no matter what boat My wife and I have been cruising sence 1997. We have encountered several E38's but no Cal40's. IMHO I think the Cal40 would make a good cruiser as long as you don't load her down too much. It's just a matter of what you require from a boat, just keep in mind she...

    E 36C Rudder Removal

    rudder worries So, I did this just a few years ago in Venezuela, and a friend in Trinadad did his. I removed the rudder by lifting it up after taking the bolt out of the hinge. It took a line from the davits to the top of the rudder and 2 or 3 guys to guide it to the ground. The pin was oval...

    Ericson 36C deck layout, rigging, and hardware?

    36c paradise Matt; Good to see you are going to put another 36C back to work. I don't hit this site too often as there is not much interest in our boat and that's probably because they didn't make that many. Anyhow, I have owned and lived on my 36C for 34yrs and are now cruising as of 1997...
