I have a '72 model Morgan 27 and like it very much. My outboard bracket is an OMC model and allows me to lower the engine (longshaft) which keeps it in the water very well. In fact, with the bracket in the up position during a Noreaster in VA I only had the prop come out twice, then only after the boat had rolled quite a lot in the 70mph gusts.
All in all, it may not be the newest or fastest boat out there but for 4k with a great running outboard, new interior and a bunch of new sails I'm not one to complain.

So much for common sense...
