Lightbulb Chesapeake Morgan Association

Just thought I'd mention that there is a Chesapeake Morgan Association - most members are in the northern end of the bay. We do raft-ups, land-sea picnics and etc. Mostly social stuff.

If you're interested check out the web-site:

83 M462 Needs a New Mainmast

Ahoy, Cap'n Larry and Saltwater Suzy!

Our non-profit organization, Friends of Sea Scouts of Maryland, Inc., owns a 1983 Morgan 462 ("der PeLiKan") ketch and in a recent mishap, her mainmast was damaged. It is bent both fore'n aft and athwartships. Annapoplis Rigging, Chesapeake Rigging and West River Rigging don't think they can straighten it; so we're looking for a used replacement. We carry only liability insurance and being a 501(c)(3), we have a very limited budget. Der PeLiKan is our main training vessel and she is used heavily by our units, even though most Sea Scout ships have their own smaller boats.

Our organization provides program support for sea scout units (called "ships") of the Chesapeake Sea Scout Flotilla, which comprises ships of six regional Boy Scout Council Sea Scout Squadrons. There are about 20 active ships in the northern Chesapeake Bay area with around 200 youth and 50 or so adult leaders. Sea Scouts are the maritime branch of the Boy Scouts of America. We welcome aboard boys (and girls - coed since 1973) ages 14 though 20 for our program, like all scouting organizations, of building character and citizenship, but in Sea Scouting, we emphasize leadership as well and do it through sailing and seamanship.

Anyway, we are looking for a new mast for der PeLiKan and we thought perhaps you might have some ideas. The bent mast is lying at Annapolis Harbor Boatyard (formerly Steve's Yacht Repairs).

Thanks in advance for your kind assistance in this quest.

Re: Chesapeake Morgan Association

Is this group still active? The website seems out of date.
