ericson 23 Sandusky, OH
I have a 1977 ericson 23. She is in very good condition. I have noticed the fiber glass on the starboard side of the cabin (inside by the bench) where the bolts are for the starboard stays is beginning to crack. I have had a marine surveyor check the area as well as the stays on the deck and he says it "appears sound" and that the crack is from the boat twisting rather than from the standing rigging being faulty.

When I am on a starboard tack looking below, I can see the gap opening and closing but not getting worse (I have it marked with and it hasn't gotten bigger during the season). I would like to get this repaired during this winter. Suggestions?

thanks!
Pamela
