Cabot 36 vs Morgan 38


The Cabot 36 was built up in Nova Scotia, as I recall, taking advantage of a govt. grant to reinvigorate industry in that area. Being a new yard & new company, financing was always a bit problematic during the short Cabot production run. As a result, how the boats were equipped (and built?) diminished in quality over time. Some came with undersized rigging, deck hardware, etc. and a good survey would need to confirm the basic structural components were soundly built IMO. OTOH all of this is probably moot at this point in the 21st century, since these boats are now due to a full reburb.

The Morgan 38/382/383/384 series (not the early centerboard Morgan 38 design) seem to have a fairly large following and getting helpful info from many existing owners wouldn''t be as challenging as with the Cabot. Which is not to say a given M38 won''t need the same broad, extensive reburb mentioned above. I think Practical Sailor has produced a published survye on this boat.

Good luck with your search...
