Centerboard for Morgan 34

You can say, that Tartan made a model of the 37 that they called the shoal draft model. It was the same as the CB model but without the CB. It did not sell well and was quickly dropped. I have sailed on a Tartan 37 with the centerboard stuck in the up position. The boat lost its otherwise sterling windward performance and did not tack as reliably in heavier air and a chop as it did with the board down.

In the kind of confined sailing areas that many coastal sailors end up sailing in the difference would turm a boat with nice sailing characteristics int a boat that could drive you crazy.

People have gone most most of the way around the world in all kinds of unsuitable craft (Webb Chiles open boat for example) but that does not prove that sailing a boat designed to use a centerboard without using it is a good idea.

Morgan34 centerboard

2years ago I bought a 1967 M34 in Portland, Oregon and sailed her up to Seattle.
Owned a Shaw24 yawl for 25 years so am aware of the virtues&c. of CCA keel/centerboard boats.
However I was mightily disappointed to discover that simply bouncing the board on a sand shoal while entering Marrowstone Island's Mystery Bay caused the s.s. tube section of the pennant to be bent - and, as I did not know that this had happened, this bent tube breached the cutlass bearing tube when I winched up the centerboard - causing a wateroverthefloorboards moment a half hour later when we were offshore.
Aaargh.
Is this installation out-of-spec somehow?
Or is there no way to avoid having the s.s. tube laying within the well where it can be pulverized by any sudden upswing of the board!?????

Thanks.

JeffH you didn't say what is broken on the board. a welding/machine shop can usually braze bronze with no prob. they should be able to repair yours?

I see this is a new post for your question. Sailnet has a Morgan site and your subject has been lived and re-lived many times. I believe Larry Dill on the site actually posted a mechanical fix for the Morgan 34 centerboard. So sign up and look in the archives or add a post and more than you ever wanted to know about your M34 will be at your fingertips.
Good Luck,
John

Are you sure it is bronze?? the 64' I have has an Iron DB box glassed over and an Iron DB which I have just removed and pitched in favor of building a stainless reinforced fiberglass DB. and the cost was resonable. Used the old DB for a template.

Hornet-

It would really help if you said where you were located... since shipping a centerboard that weighs in excess of several hundred pounds is generally a loser today.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
