We Just purchased an Ericson 39 in Portland and will be starting the renovation next week. If we are on schedule we might be able to meet up with y'all in Genoa Bay. I have done some sailing around there in my Macgregor 25 and I thought I remember reading that the entrance depth can be an issue. We will be drawing 6' v.s. 18" with our old boat. I will be a bit more paranoid not that I cannot raise my keel if I bottom out.
