Help with Morgan 30
My wife and I have purchased a 1972 Morgan 30 and I have been working on her for a few weeks now getting her clean and ready to go. I am looking for some one who has a little more knowledge than me. I keep finding lines that go to nowhere and none of the fresh water system is hooked up ( I am guessing that was done before it was stored for the winter). I am running out of ideas on where things go and what they do. My father in-law was going to be by go to guy but he passed away unexpectedly last summer. Thatís why it sat for so long. I have contacted the broker where I bought her and tried to get a hold of the P/O but no luck yet. If there is anyone with some know how near Anne Arundel County, MD please give me a shout. Thanks in advance.

I live in Annapolis. Where is the boat located? Perhaps I could meet you at the boat one day and take a look.

It’s at a private dock on the Severn. That would be great I would appreciate it a lot. Near Round Bay.

I also have a solar charger on the boat but it looks like it is connected to the battery switch. Is that common?

Want to thank the guys at Bacon sails. They answerd some of my dumb questions with out laughig at me!!!

Bacon is a great place Donnie.. say hi to Walter from Denise. To re-plumb the boat would not be very difficult since pex tubing is now very common. The books written by Don Casey are a great source!

Sounds like you are already making progress and have had a good offer of help.

Just to let you know, I have a Morgan 30 (1971) based at Flag Harbor in Calvert County, MD. I have re-plumbed and rewired etc and would be happy to add any advice I can, if you need it.
