Surveyor/opinions Morgan 45 Starratt-Jenks

Hello everyone, read some old threads and opinions about Morgan 45's built by S-J. Not all good comments, but like someone stated ,if you love the boat buy it. Iam looking hard at this boat and can see its been hauled out now for 3 years sitting dry and getting neglected. Some interior moisture. Some worn teak decking with a few spots where the flexible seal between the boards has gapped. The boat needs to be saved NOW before I think it gets beyond reasonable repair. There is a noticeable rust 6 inch "crack"and "buldging" in the lower section of the starboard side of the keel where water will seep out after a rain storm. The seeping will last for a week. Question; is the S-J built morgan a lead keel or a cement keel with steel encasing? Cosmetics I'm not to worried about but those issues can be a sign of larger hidden ones. Iam looking for someone knowledgeable with S-J built Morgan 45's, sloop rigged, center cockpit, for a survey or for your opinions of points to take notice about. I'm north of chicago about 1 hour in racine, wisconsin. thanks guys, Dave

If your available for survey, please PM me and I'll give you my number to set up appointment.

That's a pretty good sized boat, you might want to do your own searching for a surveyor versus whomever comes your way. Perhaps another reader from the area can recommend someone, I'd stop by http://www.palmerjohnson.com/ chat up a broker or a yard manager and ask him who has surveyed some of the yachts they sell...Trust me you want to get the best surveyor you can (and that means $$$). The people who survey the big boats operate at a different level than the local professionals.

A 45' foot survey - spend $1000 for the best, and you'll get it back a dozen times over and over.
