I'm restoring an abandoned Ericson 27. The bracket that connects the spreader to the mast is broken. Does anyone have an idea where i could purchase one? I've been told the "white metal" that it is made of cannot be welded.
Sailed an E27 for 10years plus. They are outstanding boats! You may have to get new spreader brackets made. That was one of the few weak points. A point of caution, keep things cauked and well bedded on the deck. It's a balsa core. Very light and strong, but doesn't like water intrusion. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I know the boat well.
