    Great 35-footers

    Congrats on the new boat. Ericson 35s are on my short list. Is there a reason why you chose a Mk 2 over a Mk 3?
  3. Didn't Matt Rutherford already do this ? https://reddotontheocean.com/ https://www.sailmagazine.com/cruising/matt-rutherford-mission-accomplished

    Do you know if the E35 Mk3 had the same issues with the rudder? I'm going to look at one this weekend.

  10. Since the bikini clad beauties are no longer allowed to sail to hot places, I'm stuck watching old seadogs waxing eloquent about past glories.

    Dinghy build: Two-Paw 8 nesting

    Nice Spindrift. I'm boat shopping now and I'm hoping to get something that will allow me to carry my Spindrift assembled but if not, well that's why I built a nesting dinghy. The solution to water leaking in around the bolts is to have a rubber washer between the hulls. I believe Chesapeake Light Craft puts a rubber sheet between the hulls. I'll get around to this eventually but right now just having rubber washers between the hulls is working to keep the water out. A few pictures of my Spindrift 11N.
