Re: William Atkin's Eric Junior?
Peter, my experience of an Eric Junior down in Hobart was that she was a dog under power (maybe underpowered in this case?) as she hobby-horsed quite significantly. Under sail she was sweet though: Swift & sure and mostly dry, under the full design canvas in 20 knots. Although there were certainly things I would have changed about the setup on that particular boat and I didn't get the experience the full power of the rig as this one also had an extra fores'l. Easy enough for me to pick my way through a crowded mooring field and bring to a full luff bang on the pin.Lovely boat! Really well behaved!
