Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions
Thanks! Great to begin to understand a little bit more about sailboat design and our Morgan's in particular. I am actually quite interested in the history of and theories behind the changes in yacht design, etc. We are so looking forward to getting our boat out and underway and enjoying her fine sailing design qualities. We've got a large bit of work before testing our sails however; Redoing the standing rigging is the first big project and our surveyor emphasized not to sail much before redoing it.
Our first night we brought her to her new home it was fierce winds, storming and pouring down rain. Found a few leaks of course...
Don't want to divert this thread from Morgan-SJ specific topics but...
So what kind of mattresses you bought you were raving about in your earlier post here? Our cushions must be 1978 originals! I've been reading and landing on hypervent (or dri-dek or froli system) underlying hd foam, 4" then memory foam, another 2"-4". ??
