    I'm posting this for a good friend who must part with his well maintained, extensively refitted Ericson due to health reasons. Tom went through great efforts to prepare the boat for his never realized TransPac race campaign. The boat is on a slip at the Berkeley Marina. You can contact Tom via email:

    An Ericsson 35-2 was overall winner of the SHTP in 2004, Phil MacFarlane in Sail La Vie, I imagine the Mk III is similar.

    Not really. Mk 1 and 2 are similar, but Mk 3 is a complete redesign. Our race chair Allen Cooper's previous boat was a Mk 3.
