Since my last boat choice didn''t pan out so well, I''m continuing to look. I''ve come across a Morgan 34 that appears to be in reasonably good shape. I seem to remember a post, some time back, in which Jeff said he particularly liked these boats. I''ve taken time to look this one over much closer.
While I''m drawn to it because it has sweet lines, I''m wondering how they sail? I tend to stay away from swing keel boats because they seem to be more tender than I like. The owner assures me that this boat isn''t tender, Is that true?
Also, this boat has a fin keel/ bronze centerboard with a skeg hung rudder (confirmed by a quick dip in the pond), I thought all these boats had full keels? Is this a better or worse set up than the full keel model?
