Morgan with no center board
Does anyone have experience with Morgan's that have had the centerboard removed and the hull has been redone done there?
35' 1975 I believe... I don't know anything about how this boat is ballisted or how changing out the centerboard and making it a regular bottom would affect performace.
Charlie Morgan's comments
I think the boards were more for racing & sailing closer to the wind.
when my m34 is at anchor. the center board makes a big diff.erence in stability.
My M-35's centerboard thumps at anchor and I am considering removing it. Charlie Morgan stated (on the Feb 2, 2007 post) the centerboard is not needed and to fill it with lead. Does anybody know how this is to be done?

re: the Center-board for your M-35.
Fill the trunk with lead and do not increase the draft, - it is not
need and will reduce access to passes and safe anchorages and refuge
if and when needed.
The M-35 was designed when the first iteration of the IOR rule was
just coming out, later changes made the board obsolesent under that
The additional lead will increase the range of stability and your
perfomance in fresh winds.
Please send us all of your contact info so we can post you and your
boat in the Morgan Rgistry and send a story about your adventures for
the Morgan Chantyman.
Cheers, ~ Charley Morgan
