Ericson is a seaworthy boat with a proven history of kind sailing. We haven't owned her long, but surgery on my husband's arm (that didn't work) has left him unable to sail. So we are putting her on the market.
She's tied up in Aransas Pass in Con Brown Harbor and her berth rental is paid up until July 1.
She's tied up in Aransas Pass in Con Brown Harbor and the marina owner will allow you continue the lease.
Very nice and affordable accommodations at "Handsome Sailor Yacht Club".
She's quite comfortable inside and ready to go today.
