Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Guess I don't understand Stretch Starrett's numbering system. My serial number is SJK003850889 and it's a 1989 manufacture. IF, and I say IF the 889 means August 1989, then I would guess my hull would #385, which is only 2 off of yours? Also, mine is a ketch, although I understood it may have started life as a yawl, and the rudder was moved back off the keel. SJ would be Starrett Jenks, so what does K stand for? Maybe the keel was already behind the mizzen mast, so K would stand for ketch?

I also have hopefully attached a .gif of the S45 sail logo. I also once saw a SJ logo, but damned if I can located.

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

FYI my hull id is: SGK000991177 and is a 1977 yawl rigged center cockpit...
If the numbering system is true, then it is hull 99 and was built/registered in Nov77.
I am also in Tampa Bay, been working on it for the last 3 years and probably got another year or so to go... I agree with the others about the performance numbers... The previous owner said to not go over 20* heel or you are wasting sail... and with the engine running at 3000 rpm thru the type 72 tranny 2:91 the prop (18x14) does hull speed... a good boat that is safe and heavy... it is my circumnavitator when I am finished with her...

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Stardate2010, you're the only other two masted Starrett I've run across. Do you have any snaps of it out of the water? I believe mine started out as a yawl, but was changed to a ketch. At least that is what the 1st owner told me. As some of you may remember, my SJ broke loose during Hurricane Issac and self sailed with ALL canvas up for about 6 hours before running aground a 2nd time, then when the waters receded, rolled onto its port side, filling the interior with lovely Mobile mud. We tried to get the mud out from behind the cabinets, etc. but it was still too damp. As you know, water does not evaporate in Mobile. We later had a problem with the cockpit scupper drain hoses not going overboard (hidden behind the genset) and we had water up to the floorboards and over in some places, which was now mixed with the kerosene we used to pickle the Perkins in hopes of saving that. Quite a stinky mess. So finally, we fixed the drainage problem, bought a 7500 BTU window ac unit from Lowes, installed it in the main hatchway, turned it on & left for a month which turned into 6. Let me tell you, ALL the mud in that boat is now dry sand. MUCH easier to remove. Ah, the adventures of refitting a boat a 800 miles from your house.

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

PS, I lost my ladder into the main saloon when she was on her side. Anybody know of a wrecked or non-repairable 45 that might spare the main ladder?

Hi Popeye,

Popeye21
Thanks for the sail logo!! We were in the process of trying to research the S&J logo to put on our sails.

We have hull# SJK001680378, March, 1978, hull number 168, and she's a Sloop, aft cockpit. So what is the "K" for??

j

I recall our surveyor guessed ours was lead keel since put a magnet to the keep didn't bring any response...

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Starratt387 My mast is also keel stepped but is only 50' from the waterline... the previous owner told me about the aft cockpit SJ45 and he thought the mast was 65' for the race version... As to the K designation I have no idea as mine is also a K model... but I have the full keel also lead... but yawl rigged...

Judy - Just a winter blues impusle meltdown. Winter in WI was really long, really cold. Now that I've been to the boatyard and started prepping her for launch I feel better, but sailing in 50 degree air temps and 33 water temps still sucks. I have to move south
