I am the proud owner of a 1976 morgan 37 OI (entertainment model) with refrigerator and entertainment center down the midline of the ship. very unusual setup but got used to it real fast and find it very functional. She is heavy and not the fastest boat but she is like a floating condo. solar pannel, wind generator, huge refrigerator,makes ice faster than at home and actually works without killing the battery. never have to hook to shore power. full biminy and windshield, not a dodger, Very stable and comfortable, 6 ft 4 headroom in cabin, shoal draft (4 ft draft). Big 50 hp perkins with 380 hours!!! (rebuilt). She is definately a cruser though and not a racer. Very particular about the wind. I guess thats why the big engine.

LarryandSusanMacDonald will become famous soon enough
Living aboard a 1977 Morgan Out Island 41 ketch for 11 years. Have done lots of refitting - including rewiring, new engine Westerbeke 55b to replace Perkins 4-108), reverse-cycle heat/AC - pretty much all new interior. Gutted both heads and galley and v-berth to the hull and started from scratch. New bimini, dodger and enclosure, etc. etc. etc. Planning on a hard bimini this spring. Anybody done this on a OI 41?

She is a yawl, wheel steered. The rigging is 3/8" 1x19 on 5/8" t'b'kles.

Do you know what hull number she is? You can find it on the exterior upper corner of the transom. The boat was designed as the Morgan 45-1 Keel Sloop. 12 of them were built before Morgan sold the moulds to Starratt and Jenks.

Are you going to rig her as a yawl with the taller mast or some other configuration?

I would be interested to know if you have verified the thickness of the hull in any locations.

Thought we were the only ones! We have a 77 Morgan OI 30' and its super. Its a tank, does'nt sail as pretty as some of the deep keelers but we like to find secluded overnight spots and its been a blast. It only draw 3 1/2' and on our rocky N.E. shores its 'way cool!'

Triton185:

I have the Hull Number in her papers but not with me at the moment. Thanks for the tip about the transom.

She will be rigged as a yawl, but modified as follows. Themast will be about 9' taller (59' above LWL) and stepped for'd of the original location by about 24" This will allow using the original chainplates and sweptback spreaders. We will have a double headstay rig going to the stem belowdeck. The stays will be separated about 1.5" and go through the deck about 48" aft of the stemhead. The original CCA giant genoa will be scrapped. She will carry a boomed stays'l on the after stay and a jib (about 110%) on the for'd stay.

The mizzen will also move for'd by about 24"

We have cored the deck and it is 1/2" glass outside, 3/4' plywood (absolutely dry) and 1/4" glass inside.

The hull is at least 1/2" glass where we removed some thru-hulls above the waterline and gets real thick below.

Thanks for your interest.
