    Any other Ericsons on Kerr Lake in Henderson NC??

    i think only two that I know of. Both on C dock of Staeel Creek Marina. I used to have “Pronto” an Ericsson 26 there, but I sold her and her new owners haven’t been around for several years. Pat SV Kailani

    Builders plate

    Wonder if this would work? Loren, has a brass "Commisioning Plate" listed for sale. I got one a few years back for Kailani as she had no builders plate. Pat S/V Kailani Corkins Neck, NC
