Hello Christian, Kerry and Mr. Tenders,

Thanks for quick replies. I did not check the tread last week because i was not expexting you respond so soon. Thank you again. I also realized that i.made a typo in my previous post: my boat is.1975 E32, not 1972.

I did not start the rewiring project yet. Bunch of other things needs attention first: transmissin (docking with no reverse was not fun) automatic and manual bilge pump (replacing a 20-yearold hose tht goes under the most greasy parts of the boat), and now both batteries died on me. I am trying to decide if i should get 2 deep ceycle battery or get one starter battery. What about a third "emergency-only" battery? Too many decissions :)

Mr. Tenders, i would love to check your boat sometime but weekends are going to be tough, because i go to Pt. Washington to work on the boat. How are your weekdays?

Hi Greg & WELCOME!

Not sure what you mean by “plastic ports” as those on the sides of the cabin trunk are tempered glass whereas the ones on top (forward hatch and main salon hatch are indeed of acrylic.

IF it is the side ports you need, there is a ‘78 E-32 that is about to be cut up with good aluminum ports and glass here in Michigan. It also has the two hatches that may be of interest for you (???). They need some clean up work on the Teak but the acrylic looked pretty good yet.

Just click on the “what’s new” link and scroll down (I think). You should be able to find it. It’s only been a little over a week since being posted. You’re in Toledo so I see and VERY close to see the boat and offerings first hand!

You are right, this site will get you more help from Ericson owners who have been there, done it an have the T-shirt for whatever problem you are going through.

Welcome aboard!!

Welcome! And if it is a 1988, it's almost certainly a 32-III... (or a variant, such as the 32-200)

The 32-2 is an older model (different hull design), built from 1969 to 1978.
