Pretty sure he/she wants an Ericson 33RH. There are several owners of those who are active here. I used to crew on one. Fast boat with a large fractional rig and full-on cruising interior. Fun to sail, too.I have a 32, never heard of a 33....mine is in Seal Beach Ca ++ cheers
Thanks Lynn for the comments. I have not sailed a boat yet SH with the traveler directly in front of the wheel (like a lot of J/Boats). From photos, to me it looks a bit cut-off but as you say maybe it's easy to just sit alongside of the wheel with your feet in front. Fortunately, I know a few sailors in the bay area here that are going help me get acquainted with a few boats - so maybe I'll get to try this setup at some point. The club boat I use has a cabin top mainsheet (there is no traveler) and a "dance floor" cockpit, so I sail it SH using the autopilot mostly, but I am not going to be buying a boat like that - that's why I am looking at (used) racer/cruiser type boats in 30-34 ft range...sorry to get us off topic here ...If my boat had a wheel, the traveller would go smack in front of it. I would not feel trapped because I sit at the side of the wheel the majority of the time, as opposed to 'behind' the wheel. For this reason, a big wheel would be more desirable. More comfortable/better ergonomics, more $.
