Re: methods of recovering a morgan 25 1967

I keep thinking the plywood and slide with full straps will work nicely However if the grass and underlying soil are even textured without significant rocks I'd wet down the area just under her to lubricate the initial slide and not be too concerned about plywood.....which after all could create as much damage as ordinary turf. Have you checked the hull out well already? Check under the starboard quarter bunks and the forward bulkheads where they meet the bilge. Also above that where the chain plates are attached. If she's had water sittin in her for any time you likely have some work to do. Its a great boat, I have a 67/8 and love it dearly....all it takes is love and money!
