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

on this question can be found on his reply to the same question on 2 Feb 07 on the forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/morganowners/ You can read it yourself but he indicates the M35 will sail just fine with out the board. http://members.cox.net/morgan24site

I think the boards were more for racing & sailing closer to the wind.

M-35 Centerboard

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?

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/morganowners/ Go to Feb 2, 2007 in the matrix at the bottom of the page and you will read this statement from Charley Morgan:

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
rule.

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

Let me know if I can be of any help to you

Regards

Brad
