I guess they were really "cranking them out" that year! Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I do know the difference between a Morgan 25 and a Morgan 24. Charley named it a 24 and when the Breatrice Company bought into it, they renamed it a 25. It measures 24'11". When I tried to tell the registration people it was a 24, they weren't buying it. But in the old days, if you didn't have another full foot, that meant something! Kind of like the 9.9 outboards, not being a 10 hp. What is this world coming to?

Does anyone know what this means? "OFF. NO. 512983 NET 5" It's written along the aluminum piece over the cabin door, on the forward side, in huge letters.

Thanks

Took my Morgan 24/25 out for the first time....sailed her from Islamorada, FL to Marathon. She sails like a dream...needs a little tweaking of course....and a few updates, but all in all I am very happy with my new boat!

I purchased my 1967 Morgan 24 Hull number: States Morgan 24, under that is 1-075, under that appears to be 66-52? but paint is obscuring these figures. I purchased her shortly before Thanksgiving November 2011, have been waiting on the ship yard and suppose it will be January 2012 before she is hauled for pressure washing, scraping and assessment of what we find, she does not leak, and the hull seems sound, may need to order a new centerboard, the internal system was slack, I have repaired the internal system. Had an M25 in the early 80's and always regretted selling but after several hurricanes, and being single and a lone wolf had no one to sail with I let her go. Looking forward to looking out at our dock to see Felicity out there, she needs work but Morgan built a quality boat that will be worth bringing back.

Charlie B, When I search 512983 on the USCG documentation site it shows a 25' vessel named Papillon owned by Nicholas Chapman. If this matches your data it is your documentation number. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Yes, my records show that to be the original name and owner!

I'm guessing the "net 5" would refer to her weighing five tons. (she doesn't like to talk about her weight, she's working on it)

WOW! My little girl's been documented! I can't believe it. I wonder if I could have the information updated and keep her documented, with the same number?

Thanks for taking the time to look this up for me,
Charlie

1970 Morgan 33 sloop

I have hull #39 a 1970 Morgan 33 which I have owned since 1975. My sailing waters for the past 35 years have been the Southern New England coast, Since 2005 I am now in the Cheseapeake Bay.

A have made a number of additions to my Morgan, replacing the original exhaust which was featured in DIY BOATING, the addition of A/C also featured in a sailing publication and a removable cockpit dining table which appeared in SAIL and PRACTICAL SAILOR.

I added a 110V AC fridge and a built in Kenyon alcohol/electric range. I also wired my boat throughout with 110V AC power w/ circuit breaker for when docked in marinas and at home. I replaced the forward fibreglass hatch with a Bomar unit fitted to a custom teak frame.

I have photos available to any interested parties.

Captiva,
I would love to see your boat. She sounds wonderful.
I too added a 110/12 volt refrigerator. It was a lot of work to fit it in where the clothes hangers were, but it was well worth it. Plus it made my wife, who lives for the galley, so happy! Even though we live in Maine, I know she would really love an AC unit. Maybe someday?
Do you even sail this far up the coast?
