Re: methods of recovering a morgan 25 1967

I would jack the boat up and lay down plywood underneath it. I would use butcher block wax/soap on the wood. The boat should slide fairly easily. Plywood would hold up better then thin luan board. Just lay out a few sheets ahead of it and hop scotch the sheets so you wont need as many. You will be surprised how the wax helps it slide. As for harnessing to it. You need to pull from multiple points A good quality 3/4'' rope should work. I would wrap aound the keel and all the cleats to one pulling point. The boat only weighs a couple of tons a decent truck or tow truck with a winch will work as a pulling power.
