How thick was the oak ? I had been thinking of using Bella Wood 3/8 x 2.5 solid teak pre finished flooring on a bulkhead.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

I can smell it

It does look very nice, Duck. If you're still monitoring this thread... I'm currently torn between a Morgan 34 and a Bill Luders 36. They are both in good shape. Assuming no serious inspection results issues, the Morgan has the edge because of draft (Luders is around 5.5). I'll be sailing on Chesbay 75% of the time.

How important has draft been to you on the Bay and what other restoration/maintenance problems have you encountered?

Thanks
John

John - I had to rebuild the head, replace all the hoses and put in a new holding tank. Engine and centerboard have been fine. I did spend 400.00 on a new instrument panel for the engine.

The shallow draft has been key on the bay. One of the main reasons I selected the boat. I am not sure how much of a difference there really is between 3.5 feet and 5.5 though. I can cut a lot of corners and get into out of the way places sometimes avoiding other boats.

I sailed Friday, beautiful, wish I was out today. Good luck maybe see you out...where is your morgan...check the sails carefully, lucky mine were almost brand new..

Morgan 34

Tha Morgan is in Hampton. The Luders is going to be in Annapolis for October. Their condition will go a long way toward the ultimate decision. Changing out the head I can deal with, but I'm not planning to take on a project boat.

The engine in the Morgan is an original gas atomic 4. I'll replace it immediately if I choose that boat. Not sure yet what the other has.

Glad to hear that draft has been a plus. I do wonder if two feet would make a difference. I used to sail the bay in a 6+ foot boat and that was significant. I hope to keep the boat in a marina near my home that is limited by draft.

'Twas a beautiful weekend for sailing. Hope to be out there next summer.

John

John - I also keep the boat near my house where the MLW is 4 feet, so it helps. Look for my Morgan next year, SPIRIT, Wye River..good luck..
