I'm not sure whether our boat counts as a Morgan or not. Her hull was Morgan-designed and about 12 of them were laid-up, or whatever the term is for producing a fibreglass hull, 1976-1979. The boats were built at the Starrett & Jenks yard in Florida.
Enchantress' is 45' 10 '' on deck with a beam of 11 ft and a draft of 6' 1 ''. She is sloop-rigged but has running backstays so she can also sail as a cutter. For a heavy boat (25,000) she sails very well in light air. Last week we were out in 5-10 kts and she was doing over 6 kts at times. With here narrow beam she heals easily but her draft and weight make her really steady.
We spend last year pretty much rebuilding her (electrics, engine, plumbing, new head, refrigeration, cushions, etc.) But this year we've been out just about every weekend since she was launched in mid-April.
We are in Herrington Harbour South Marina in Friendship, MD (near Chesapeake Beach and Deale) on the Chesapeake Bay.
