Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Jeff:

Post 115 was from Popeye21 and his boat looks like it does have a "Brewster Bite" configuration which you refer to as 'standard practice' if I read you right. Our modification to Orion is less adventurous than either Popeye21 or Talisman -- we just added about 6" to the fore'n'aft dimension, i.e., chord, of the rudder. And filled in the prop aperture.

As to reasoning, I prefer the traditional configuration, rudder hung on the aft edge of the keel/fin/deadwater. The are pros and cons, of course. The separated foils in vogue now have a bit less wetted surface and produce more turning torque per unit of wetted surface. The configuration is more 'efficient' in at least the hydrodynamic sense. Probably.

On the down-side it is more prone to snagging and structural damage. And seems to require more attentive helm-keeping.

keforion.

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Hey guys it's Mick. Been gone for awhile. I see we haven't had many posts in some time. I'm about to pull Mysti out of the water next week at the Salt Creek Marina. Going to sit it next to Orion for inspiration. Going to have the bottom done and replace all of the seacocks so I can sleep better. About ready to head to Belize. I've managed to get in some good sailing in the last year but I'm getting tired of the Tampa Bay and will be looking to move further south soon. I figured out this boat will never be done so why wait. As CAPTAIN RON said "get her out on the ocean. If anything is going to happen , it's going to happen out there.

BTW I did have a chance to meet Charley Morgan and I raced Mysti in the annual Morgan regatta. Mysti performed well and was probably the number one photographed boat at the regatta. The Skipper on the other hand has no idea about sailboat racing. I got DNF place whatever that means; first I think! (in my mind anyway) I registered her as an Morgan OR45. (Ocean Racer 45) this was the original designation for this boat and perhaps we should pick that up in our discussions. If any of you are around the Tampa Bay in April they will be holding this again and you can find it by a search on the "Morgan Invasion".

I'd love to see a photo of popeyes Ketch.

Mick:

We've been planning to get to Salt Creek for three months now -- sorry that we probably missed you. Glad to hear you are in the water and racing. I've been re-building sextants, learning celestial and making rigging parts for Orion. Agreed on the designation 'OR45' as there are some other 45's out there that are not the same. Not too surprised about the photography -- she is the sweetest thing Mr Morgan ever drew (Bruce Bingham may have had something to do with it as well, as I have heard.)

Miatapaul: About the photos ... Agreed! I think the problem is that it is not very obvious to posters as to how to attach or insert photos. I did it once but can't figure it out again.

Here she is rudder modded....smooth straight sailing. Light balanced helm with good rudder feedback. plus single-handed docking in a crosswind is freakin' awesome now.

here's some interior shots. Keep in mind these are almost 2 years old and, well, you get it.

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

I just purchased what I believe was the last ever S&J 45 made. Hull number 387 was in progress when the company shut down and the previous owner had to hire the employees outright to finish installation of the deck. The title shows the hull as a 1990. It was never fully completed but did sail for a few years. Most of it's life was spent on the dry. I would like to talk to builders/owners and see some photos of interiors.
