I am curious as to her exact type. She is called a Morgan 45 -- 45'8" LOA, 25,000 lb displ, 11,000 lb ballast (NOT a centerboarder)

She is a yawl, wheel steered. The rigging is 3/8" 1x19 on 5/8" t'b'kles.

Do you know what hull number she is? You can find it on the exterior upper corner of the transom. The boat was designed as the Morgan 45-1 Keel Sloop. 12 of them were built before Morgan sold the moulds to Starratt and Jenks.

Are you going to rig her as a yawl with the taller mast or some other configuration?

I would be interested to know if you have verified the thickness of the hull in any locations.
