in answer to rosskowh. the morgan 30 is indeed a very seaworthy vessel which sails with most cruising boats in the 40 foot range. my morgan 30 has undergo many restorations over the 40 years I have owned her. rigging and general maintainace are part of owning an older boat, that considered you can take her anywhere. good luck also look at morgan 30 my hole in the water he has gone to the extreme on resto but it should last him a long time.
