Ericsons are known not for their spritely performance but for solid, heavy, reliable hulls that happen to sail pretty well.
"Tri-Again" was named after her owner, Bob Stange had moved on to a new chapter in life. He had not quite completed building a trimaran that he began in the late 60 s. Cold molded of epoxy and plywood, the boat endured years of weather in the backyard. The demands of a growing family outpaced the time and budget allowed for the dream project. Perhaps a final nail in the coffin was when the school across the street was replaced with a new subdivision, cutting off the path of launching in the nearby Ottawa River. The trees and plant life growing out of the delaminating hull confirmed the dream would never be realized. Finally around 2004, this Point Place landmark was cut up and removed. Bob was now retired and still had a desire to go sailing - espescially with his grandchildren. So we located "Tri-Again" in a local boatyard. She was abandoned for 10 years and full of water 8 inches above the floors and in the old atomic-4 engine. With just a good cleaning, this boat went back to the water where it has been enjoyed by the family and friends ever since. The middle child, Erica decided the name would be fitting and it stuck the decals on the transom where they have remained, confusing multi-hull sailors on Lake Erie. The last few years we have upgraded to a new headsail and mainsail. This year the addition of roller furling will make cruising and daysailing much easier.
