97 Morgan Invasion FIRST Place Winner of Out Island. 98 Morgan Invasion THIRD Place Winner of Out Islands.
Great blue water, handles rough weather exceptionally well.
Likes wind of 10 knots best. Presently the boat has new just about everything. Added pressurised water, shower, waste tank, cockpit shower, propane locker, sump pump, autopilot, GPS, Depth, Wind, knotmeter in cockpit, 3 batteries. New fiberglass non-skid on deck. For more information, email me direct. Port of call New Port Richey, Florida.
The 2 weakness we have found is the rub rail (numerous leaks) and delamination around mast plate. These are a must for safety to be properly fixed or replaced.
In process of restoring!! OH, WHAT FUN!!!!

Pros:
Cons:

It is a sloop
perhaps the largest 28' sailboat ever made, and still an excellent sailor
It sails very well, goes well to weather, and it has a sturdy solid feel. The galley is as big as most forty footers - tons of storage for a 28. This can be an excellent liveaboard.
It has fairly high freeboard, though this has not been a problem for me.
I cannot think of another 28 footer I would rather have unless I was heavy into racing. I will be doing some extended offshore this year with it. I love it!

Pros:
Cons:

Great cruising boat for a young family or older couple. She's stable, has plenty of room below, economical and easy to sail.

Though she's not exceptionally fast, her shallow draft means that I get into many areas in tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay that others can only dream about.

The only drawback is that with the stock Yanmar engine, she's not as fast underpower as are some of today's sailboats. But then, isn't the engine supposed to be for auxillary purposes?

Just purchased boat. Refurbishing to liveaboard and cruise. Great boat--we love it!
Returned from summer spent sailing Misty in Abacos Islands Bahamas. She handled the crossing with ease and who says you need a big boat to go where you want to go! We've spent a lot of time updating her, new mainsail and stove (LPG) plus comfort items. Smaller than most others in the anchorages in the Bahamas, but still the same beautiful view at sunset as the big guys!

She's not the fastest girl on the water, but she handles well in a blow (25kts+) Lots of room and storage.. The only thing I will change is Tiller to wheel and add more drainage. The "PUFFIN" lives here in Rhode Island and sails up and down Block Island sound and Long Island sound. Next year(2003)She will sail to the Keys and maybe to Cuba (depends on the good old U.S.of.A)I would like to talk to anyone interested in the Morgan 28 Out Island... odyssey_68@hotmail.com.....
Fair winds All..

We recently traded our Hunter 23 for this fine vessel. We were looking for more room and overall comfort while sailing in and outside the Barnegat Bay (NJ). The Merry Bee handles everything well, considering she has the original sails and an A-Frame mainsheet setup. By next season we plan to have a mid-boom traveller installed with a new main to follow ASAP.
