It was named after a friend of Captain McDougall's who was the inventor of the first screw propeller. Its hull looks somewhat like a submarine and was designed so that the decks would be awash in rough seas.The John Ericsson was 396' long with a 48' beam and a draft of 21'. This is a poured resin hull in 1 piece, solid resin. Thereby the bottom or keel may be a bit rough and may require some extra attention and work. It's not a defect, it's how the kit is and the only way to guarantee a clean appearance and fit for the upper half of the kit.
