Pros:
Cons:

With out a doubt, the Morgan 35 was over built. My boat was knocked down during high seas off the coast of Bermuda and continued on to Aruba. The Dinghy was dragged a long , hitting the bow, yet did no damage to the hull.

The only bad experience I had was in Aruba, It did not involve local Aruban people, but a greedy doctor from Holland that broke every rule of ethics known. If you would like to hear more, just e-mail me at ( ew2391@mail.rscs.net)

This story is almost impossible to believe , I would not have believed it if it had not happened to me.

Pros:
Cons:

I acquired my Morgan (Hull 63) three years ago, after having crewed on the boat for 10 plus years.

The Palmer M60 finally died, but I was able to locate a replacement at marineengine.com and will install it when the water gets a bit softer up here. The boat is definately overbuilt. Mast is like a telephone pole, and the transom glass has to be 2 inches thick! After 30+ years, she still handles the Port Huron - Mackinac race.
New opening ports, a new cabin sole, rewired with a new breaker panel and she's good as new!

Pros: fast for 27'7" waterline
Cons:

I owned hull # 115 in the late '70's....I completley rerigged/reengined/rebuilt every system, before leaving for 5 years from Tampa bay, island hopped all the way down to the Grenadines and turned around and island hopped back to Ft. Lauderdale...external lead keel/centerboard...the lower stays were upgraded from 1/8" to 1/4" with thru bolted chainplates, instead of the small deck mounted plates (too weak for offshore), Great sailing boat, fast...only one story....while sailing south to Bequia in the normal 20-30 winter tradewinds, with 15-25 beam seas I steered upwind a bit, excelerating off the top of a huge wave, literally shooting off the top of the wave, heeled over at 7 1/2 knots...(double reefed main and a working jib), the only thing in the water was the skegged rudder as we dropped 25 feet down, bow first, into the trough; (gulp)...as the bow smashed into the bottom of the sea.... from the helm, looking thru the entire interior cabin...I saw the whole interior bend from the huge impact!!!! Yikes....as soon as we anchored, I got into the dinghy and observed on the port forward upper hull ; a 5 ft. arc, "hairline" gelcoat crack....no problem!!! I would never do that again....
