FWIW, most (all?) early models came with all fixed ports, with mid to later models ending with eight all opening posts. All opening ports were plastic Beckson, anything else an owner added. 1986 was the last year of production for the 36T, a few were made on a custom basis after 1986.
Sorry can't agree. The 33 and later the 30 had a fixed port option. The 36T all had opening ports and the last production was 1988, the second year of the Merlin. They produced both the T and the Merlin in 1987 and 1988. I have a 88 Merlin and had an 84 30. I was at the factory nearly every weekend in late 87 and the first four months of 1988 checking on my boat while it was on the line.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
