New Morgan 35 MK 2 owner, Introduces self!

Hello All! Just bought a new to me, 1971 Morgan 35! I would like to thank all the people here for the info I gleaned on this website, while making my decision. Boat was outfitted 2 years ago with new engine, sails, SS shaft, 3 bladed wheel, electronics, keel was dropped and rebedded, new stainless keel bolts installed and lots of other stuff. Owner sailed around for a year and decided he wanted a bigger boat and I got lucky. Rest of boat is 42 yrs old. Working on washing cushions and covers. Playing with the teak a little. Scrubbing, lots of scrubbing! Pulled the water tank the other day and getting a new one from Ronco in California. Old one was cracked in a couple of places and leaking. Getting familiar with systems on boat. Making the boat mine. I have 4 hrs of sailing experience but, plan on getting a lot more here soon. I was a off shore commercial fisherman when I was a "yute". Docked in Cocoa, FL. Right near the locks to Port Canaveral. So, Thanks again and maybe I can be of assistance in the future, in some way. Kevin

Have fun with your new boat. Remember to keep the sailing vs repairing hours in some sort of balance. Post pictures.

Re: New Morgan 35 MK 2 owner, Introduces self!

Hello All, Been doing a lot of work. Got new water tank in, no sweat. 350 bucks delivered. Original equipment, actually. Identical tank to old one. White formica to all doors on interior. Sanded and oiled all teak door frames on interior. New polycarbonate ports, the big, un openable ones, port and stbd. Used Dow 795 for that. Vented holding tank, that helped with the stink. Painted inside of hull, where I could reach via cabinets and storage areas. Ripped out the cabinets in the head. But, put that job off till later. Working on toerail and stanchions, rebedding stanchions with the help of MaineSail's excellent tutorial and butyl tape. So, it's coming along. Got a lot left to do. Just keep on plugging. Got a lsz 1 and learned how to sew cushions. Been practicing on one 18 by 18 by 4 inch cushion. Sewed 10 covers for it, different materials, for practice. Gonna start those odd shaped forward berth cushions in a week or so. Staying busy. It's turned into a form of therapy. I'll post pics soon. Kevin
