Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

Oh, there is no way in the world I'm gonna do a peel. I was simply using that statement to demonstrate how much the seller came off of his price because of the blisters.

I plan to haul her in the fall, strip the bottom and open up the blisters myself. I'll let it dry over the winter and then button her up.

I've spent he last four months digging into every crevice onboard, and, aside from the issue listed in the original post, she is in fantastic condition! I certainly bought the right boat, I think. No buyer's remorse here!

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

Pictures? You have me wanting to look into Morgans now. My boat had lots of pimples all dry. and most were just in the gelcoat itself. I paid a friend (had money then) to grind it all off to with 50 and 36 grit and then we applied 2000E. Best thing ever did to the boat.. except not sand when it was time to apply bottom paint.

I'm very interested in the Keels on Morgans. Lead? bolts? Access to them?
Congrats again!

It's an encapsulated lead keel. No bolts. I'll try to post some more pics of the boat. Here is a video from the pre-offer test sail.

Have you tried it? I've seen this mentioned a few times around the net, but it gets mixed reviews.
