Ed,

 

There are actually 149 image files. 137 photos and 12 drawings.  They are all posted in the Photos Album section of the ECA website.  

 

If you send me high resolution drawing files, I can post them in the Documents section of the website, and we can create a page on the website dedicated to your restoration project, with links to the photos and drawings.

The two high resolution files kindly provided by Ed have been added to the Library section of the ECA website.  Look under Library/Boat Maintenance and Repairs. 

 

There are three links: one for photos, a second for the deck hardware and a third for the electrical schematics.

 

In the near future I will make a custom page for all the #1484 restoration information, so we will have only one link from the Library.  We will also most likely limit access of the high resolution drawings to members of the ECA.

Hello Vic !
 
Sorry you had to go through all that !  Yes: I have been working to update and caption the photos you brought over from Yahoo... As noted, the jpeg's in the album are low-res and are meant to be placeholders for the separate, high-res PDF's of my CAD drawings. I attach here two, high-res composite PDF's of those CAD drawings for general reference. I don't need a custom page just for the drawings, maybe just stash them behind the Library / Boat maintenance and Repair tab?
 
BTW: the " Rebuilding the Ensign Interior by Bud Brown" document is amazing !  My hat's off to Bud for a well written and thorough presentation of his restoration project. I read it twice last night and it kicked my brain into thinking of what I may have missed in my own (ongoing) restoration. Thank You Bud !!
 
Vic; Thanks again for all you do for us here!
 
Ed

Well, this is embarrassing. I now see that I had already posted the Eraser restoration image files as a photo album back in May of 2020, and that set has 160 files! I will delete the latest album, leaving the original.

 

My offer still stands to post the high resolution drawing files and to create a custom page on the website dedicated to your project.

Ed,

 

I downloaded all the messages and photos from the EnsignSailors Yahoo Group before we closed it down. I thought we had posted the EnsignSailors message thread here in the new website, but cannot currently locate it. (I do, however, have the messages on my own computer.)  More importantly, I have 137 images files, a combination of your drawings and photos, related to the restoration of #1484.  I will get these posted today.

Hi,
 
This is Ed and am owned by the Ensign 22 #1484 referenced here! The boat is still in restoration mode, having been delayed by real life. I'm now building a new boat shop up in Washington and expect to have Eraser back on the water sometime next year.
 
The Beckson deck plate link is correct. I have four of the 6 inch in the aft deck and in the rudder post bulkhead and one 8 inch on the bow. All are very easy to use and do not leak.
 
As to the photos on the Ensign Class Association site, most of the back-story I had written on the old Yahoo site was lost when the transfer took place. I had planned to re-create that narrative, but decided to just do captions...and still working on those! At one time, I had a high-res PDF of my CAD drawings on Yahoo but don't know if they made the trip to the new site, so i include it here.
 
Hope this helps!
Ed

Hi David. I, too, have been studying this restoration. In one of his CAD drawings there’s a hard to see call-out for the part he used. They are made by Beckson and the link to the specific model is here:

https://www.becksondirect.com/product/dp64-w/

 

I can’t remember if I’m mixing up different resources I’ve found online or what but I could have sworn that I read a detailed write up of the restoration process that went along with the photos- more than just the short captions that accompany some of the photos in the album here on this site. Can anyone confirm this and, if so, point me to that link? Thanks in advance.

I have enjoyed the pictures/information shared in re the restoration of “ERASER” #1484. I have some specific questions I would like to ask the owners/restorers. One, for instance, is “What type/model/mfg/size..were the deck plates used on the aft deck?”. If you could share that information, via this Forum,  and/or could/would contact me directly, I would appreciate it greatly.
