Ericson 29 mainsail (barely used) for sale...

I have a mainsail off of my last boat (1971 Ericson 29) for sale.

Long story short, I bought an Ericson 30+ a few years ago after selling my E-29. The latter had major engine issues and a broken mast. I got a ton of low ball offers. So, I eventually took everything of value off the old boat and threw it in my garage and sold the boat to the highest, low offer. Most stuff transferred nicely to my new boat. Not the main sail or Atomic 4 stuff. And there it sits.

I sailed with this main maybe a dozen times before selling the boat.

Its a “2+2 Main” from Doyle Sailmakers (Bill Colombo designed it with SF Bay wind in mind)

-7.3 ounce Dacron
-2 std battens, 2 full battens, 2 reefs
-slides, headboard, insignia, bag

i paid $1500 then. I’m asking $400 or OBO for it. I’ve got the original receipt and work order.

I don’t think it’s practical to ship. I sail out of San Francisco. So, best if you’re in the Bay Area or close proximity.

See pic below. That’s sailing her full sail under the Golden Gate Bridge in 2013.

Now $500 o.b.o.

Price has been lowered to $500 o.b.o.

If you have an Ericson 29 with an older mainsail, I’d definitely consider this sail.

It’s “like new” and roughly 1/4 of the price of a new one.

Call me if you have any questions.

Do you have the dimensions? E29 supposedly was available in tall and standard configurations.

Good question, it’s the more common “standard rig”. The sail was built based on the following measurements...

I= 36.50
J= 12.24
P= 30.54
E= 12.04
(all in feet)

One thing I forgot to mention. The sail has a loose foot design. This is the standard nowadays.

Does it fit 78 E27?

Hey, very interested in the sail if its still for sale (almost wrote sail haha).

Right now i have a J25 on my E27 but looking for something better and bigger. Do you know if this would fit a 78 E27?

Still pretty new with this info, thank you for patience with my ignorance

Thanks for your interest BUT (unfortunately) my sail is too big for your E27. You need a sail with P = 28’ (or smaller) and E = 10’ (or smaller). Mine is roughly 30’x12’.

Here are the specs for your boat....

Good luck!

Hi all,

So sorry but I haven’t checked this in a while BUT the sail is still available and in its bag, safely in my garage.

If you’re interested, feel free to give me a call (or msg me here) and I’ll be sure to respond quicker this time:egrin:

Hey. I will take it. For my E28+ if it’s what you say. Call me 203-810-9298.
Hi, sorry for the slow response...the sail is off of an Ericson 29.

If you have an E28+, it won't work. This sail would be about 4 feet shorter than yours and a foot longer along the boom.

For anyone else looking the specs are:

P: 30.54 ft / 9.31 m
E: 12.04 ft / 3.67 m
