What a great board. Wish I'd discovered it sooner!
I'm a proud owner of an Ericson
Independence 31' cutter
that I recently purchased in Puerto Galera, Philippines
. My wife, myself and our 3 children
sailed it to our beach property on Guimaras Island in the Western Visayas where she is now safely (I hope) dry docked and is receiving much needed TLC.
I, we just came back to Canada
with a long list of parts
necessary to bring her back to tip top shape and plan to go back again soon.
Refitting her been a difficult but an enjoyable experience thus far. It's hard to find sailboat things in the Philippines! I hope I have better luck finding parts
