About this time last year we purchased a 1970 Ericson
30 we call Family
Adventure. We also adopted a little boy last year (he's 11) and we were searching for a family
activity to get into that none of us had ever been exposed to; something we could all learn together. So now we have both a new son and a new boat
; neither came with an instruction manual.
Our objective is to get our boat
into tip top shape in the next month or two so that we can start with some short trips this summer. We're currently getting quotes for gel coat work
to some delamination
on the bow, and new paint
, including a bottom job. In parallel, we are going to be taking some sailing lessons
from a local guru.
from the ground up so we look forward to soaking up your collective knowledge through this forum.
