Need help w/old 38 Charlie Morgan

Can anyone tell me how these early 1970's 38' sail? it has a 3-1/2" draft. Are they worth getting? One guy told me his needed a blister repair job and the boat wasn't worth the cost of the repair. I thought they might be worth more than that??

I've owned a 1971 Morgan 38 since 2002. Love the shallow draft. Have sailed from Port Canaveral area to Miami and three trips from Port Canaveral through Okechobee Waterway to Tampa Bay Area. boat is currently at Pasadena Marina in St Pete. Have sailed 3-5 miles offshore or in ICW and shallow draft is perfect, it allows us to use more of the water areas. You'll be surprised at how much water is out there that is less than 6' deep. Ours is a full keel with a swing down center board if I want to go to 8' I think, but I have never used the swing down centerboard. Boat sails at 6.5 to 7.5 kts with no side slip. Miller Williams
