I had an Ericson
32, loved that boat sailed her in an 80 knot
squall in Antigua
, just kept her head
to the wind
she was fine. Then sailed her from Guadeloupe
in about 30 knots on the beam it was a fun fast ride.
I love that boat.
Stay out of shallow water
, mine had a 6 foot keel
, ran into trouble in Clear water Florida
, you should have little trouble on the California
Did I say I love that boat.
