Awesome, glad to hear there's so many Morgans, and especially M30s as old as mine still out there. Particularly glad to hear that Kim & Ray are Florida/Bahamas cruising, as that's exactly where I'm headed in the fall. If I spot you guys in port, I'll be sure to dinghy over so we can compare notes.

Ray in Miss: for the first two years I owned the boat the c/b was stuck up in the slot by an overgrowth of barnacles, but I also found that pointing ability was good without the board (though you do have to plan for a lot of leeway.) Now that the board is fixed though ... oh baby, she tracks and tacks like a dream!

Windermere, it may just be that you bumped the release lever for the board. I've done that on mine, it's just a pawl on gear that disengages pretty easily. If you can crank the handle and the board comes back up, you're probably fine.

Keep 'em coming!
