1969 Morgan 34

I assume you are talking about the centerboard model. The 34 and 24 were my favorite early Morgans. These are neat old boats. They were excellent sailers for their day, and offered the ability to duck into shallower waters than more modern designs. With their centerboards down they were quite weatherly for a boat designed in the mid-1960''s and with their board up were also quite quick dead downwind. While not the best engineered boats they were pretty tough old girls. I haven''t seen one in quite a few years so I don''t really know how well they have stood up to the ravages of time. One thing to watch out for is the centerboard packing gland assembly, connecting rod and centerboard bushing which were all a little troublesome but fixable.

Good luck,
Jeff

Go to the Morgan List here at Sailnet. There are many 34 owners on the list. They can help you. Search the archives, this question has been asked on the site many time.

Good Luck, I have a Morgan 384 and love her.
