Re: Morgan 22?
I can't definitively say whether that is a Morgan 22 since there were a number of similar boats in that era. (A side profile view would help a lot.) But if it is a Morgan 22, they were one of the nicer swing keel boats of that era. They sailed well, were pretty fast, rated well, and seemed to be well behaved in a range of conditions.
One thing to check is the swing keel lifting mechanism. I may be remembering this incorrectly and may be thinking of a different boat, but my recollection is that there was a plastic link rod in the lift system and that rod went through a packing gland of some kind and that this rod could fail. My recollection is that some boats replaced that rod with SS or bronze dowels which pretty much were permanent.
