Re: EO 32

Anyone at all familiar with this Ted Brewer design? It is similar to the Union 32 or the Shearwater 32. Any help would be great.

Re: EO 32

what does the EO stand for? Never mind.... found it.. "East Orient". Brewers designs are usualy pretty darn nice. Longer waterlines than many boats. That boat looks alot like a Jason 35 etc. As with all Orient built boats... how well it was built has a lot to do with the specific yard and when in their learning curve it was built. Generally though, the hulls are over built. Things to watch for are teak decks leaking into deck core, deck core having water ingress from deck fittings, Plywood used anywhere in the boat becoming soft. Good things are often big sturdy bronze tapered seacocks (not all!) and heavy layup.

Re: EO 32

HI - I saw your not so recent post and wanted to contact you. Mostly because you posted your location here in Connecticut and showed interest in the EO 32 family of boats. I Live in Manchester and recently acquired a Union 32. I would like to compare notes with you.

Paul

Re: EO 32

Greetings S/V MAKAI -

With only 20 or so of us around, its good to keep in touch. Our boat is FInella III. 1986. By the ID #, she may be the last one imported. Originally entered thru the Port Clinton yard in Ohio, and then spent the rest of its time on Lake Champlain. Now its in Mystic, Conn.

Happy Holidays !

Paul D.

Re: EO 32

Ma Kai is a 1984, originally owned by Tom Quinn, in the Los Angeles area. The boat did the puddle jump back in 1995...I have the original log books which make interesting reading. I purchased the boat in 2011. She was in excellent shape with the exception of the Volvo penta. I re-powered with yanmar in May of this year. Super happy with this boat. It has a Shaffer boom furling system on it, which I love. I also have replaced all the instrumentation with Raymarine wireless, also attached to the ST5000+ auto pilot which gives me wind vane mode.
