I had a Cat27 and the amount of room below is very impressive compared to my Morgan. Different origins I suppose. Having said that I really liked the Catalina and only sold it because a good friend of mine wanted to get into sailing and have a place to stay while visiting on weekends.
We just got a Pearson 26' mostly for the outboard as mine gave up the ghost. Both the Catalina and Pearson have/had rusty keel nuts but that's never been a problem on my Morgan. Always wondered about that...
Regards
INFIDEL

At a listed 6.6 knots...the Morgan 27 beats the Cat 27 tall rig too..and has to be one of the fastest 27-foot mono-hulls ever built...sure you could find a new "spaceship pancake" built today that can top that speed by a half knot maybe more but how much wallet do you have.?

The "hull speed" you are referring to is not a result of anything like good design but only a function of waterline length. Using the formula 1.34 x sq root of waterline length a barge with a 25' waterline is faster than both the Morgan 27 and my CS 27. The formula doesn't take into account the lengthening of the waterline length when heeled, the fact that many modern boats can sail at higher speed/length ratios than 1.34, and boats that are able to plane given the right conditions.
I'm not saying it is not a good boat, just that the "hull speed" published is a bit meaningless.

Guess you've never met an Express 27 (vintage mid 80's), santa cruz 27 (late 70's) et al. Look at a general PHRF rating list for boats in the same general size range for a very general performance comparative. Like another poster says, th. hull speed has nothing to do with much that tells us anything about a particular boat, other than how long the water line is. Sorry for piling on.

That said, the M27 is a nice good old boat for sure.

How many of you last 5 or so posters noticed the original post was from 2003! about 8 yrs or so ago!

Anyway, there is an M27 that cleans a lot of folks clocks in the 190-220 phrf bracket with the wind pipes up! hate that boat.....

What can you tell me about a 1981 TMI Morgan 27? I need information on how to determine whether the rigging is properly tuned. I bought the boat used and don't have much information on it.

The Morgan 27 will hold it's own as a racer. As stated previously, installation of some reinforcing knees under the shroud plates is a very common and simple repair to control the buckling issue...
