READER BOAT: Ericson 25
by Steven Fruth
Time – it slips by so quickly.  However, time spent with our small craft has produced thousands of lasting memories in our minds and hearts – irreplaceable memories, from the numerous crossings to Southern California's Channel Islands, to the Sea of Cortez, and into the future. Our trailerable Ericson, Melia (Ma LEE ah) has proved to be not only beautiful, but seaworthy as well.
We've made many small modifications in the sixteen years we've owned Melia: furlers for jib and main, a manual windlass, a reinforced transom with a 15hp Honda on a bracket on the port side, and a swim ladder on the starboard side, a new teak hatch, electrical work, teak and holly sole, heavier standing rigging, and a new four-stroke Honda engine.
Melia has taken us through everything from calm conditions to thirty-knot winds and eight-foot seas. We've enjoyed beautiful sunsets and pristine anchorages with never a hitch. She has been a wonderful small pocket cruiser.
