What's your Morgan?
Seems to me there's alot of OI's out there, but I've not heard of many sloops out there as old as mine. Is that true? I notice BullDog6 asking about old hull numbers for a 34. I'd make it a poll, but I don't think I know all the options.

I'm sailing Morgan 30 Hull #47, 1968, Keel/Centerboard.

So, what's your Morgan?

Hey MorganMike...Like I posted earlier I've got a M34-#008...if I gauge it according to other low number 34's I've seen I probably have a 1965 or early 66.

I emailed Charlie Morgan but I have not got a response yet.

UPDATE: Charlie emailed me back! (so cool!) :D I guessed right!

Hello,I believe mine is a 1969 Morgan 30 Sloop.I believe the Hull# is 302.I will have to check the next time I am out .I have sailed on a OI off of the shore of Gulport,Ms and it did very well,in following seas.

The previous owner of mine,took off the centerboard and glassed in the area.I was surprised on how well it still points up,very well in fact.I was going to do the repairs on the boat and sell it,now that it sails so well,I am going to keep it.Still have to get the Westerbeke to run,turns over very well,but will not run.Was told it had not run in over 7 months,may have been longer.Did a compression check,and it had none.Was told to put Marvel Mystery Oil in the injectors and let it sit for a week and try again,may try that.
Have a great weekend....Ray in Miss.

Hi, I just bought a Morgan 454 w/centerboard. When moving it to the work area from dry storage, the centerboard dropped, although the line that is suppose to hold it up was tight. I think I will have to find out what's happening by opening the pully case, but I can't get it open. Anyone have any ideas or experience with this? Thanks in advance, Bernd

We have a 1969 Morgan centerboard sloop.... we have restored her and she is beautiful and sails like a dream.... We are currently in the Bahamas but have to go back to FL come August... we intend to sail her around the keys until next summer and back to the Bahamas we will go....

I have a 1973 Morgan 36 OI, hull #42, bought it last year. So far so good. Not alot of info to be found on this model. The plan is to take her back to the Caribbean in the near future, but for now sailing in the North Channel in great.:D

1964 custom, far as I know only 2 were built and no idea if this is hull 1 of 2 or 2 of 2

Morgan 454 1983. Seems to be a great boat. Strong and fast. Still doing a lot of boat maintenance but I guess that is to be expected with an older boat and boats in general.

We have a 1969 33 Classic #25, it's a project.
