I agree. I was impressed during during the survey, I was sold by the water demo! I have run across an owner on the Ericson owners group on facebook. His in the middle of a serious refit on his.Welcome to the site!
As you might guess, there are not too many owners here with that model, and that's mostly due to a lower number produced, back in the day.
Here is one recent thread started by an owner, and if you click on his name there is a way to send him a private message.
I have been looking at Ericson 41s for a over a year and getting close to pulling the trigger on one. One of my concerns is replacing the chainplates which are fiberglassed into the hull. Has anyone done that job before? I have searched YouTube and the internet but nothing for the Ericson 41...ericsonyachts.org
Given that the construction of that boat is generally similar to the other Ericson's of the era, many construction/engineering details will be the same.
Opinion: While it's true that Bruce King seldom drew a bad boat, the E-41 remains one of his best classic designs. We visited aboard one at a rendezvous a decade ago, and were hugely impressed. This was a dark green hull, visiting the Rendezvous at Port Townsend, WA.
That is her. She needs some cosmetic work and a holding tank. But the survey came up with no safety or structural issues and she's setup up very close to what I would have done if I were starting from scratch.Looks like this one, maybe?
