Morgan 30 is off her lines, down in bow

Hi, Folks,

I wonder what's happening. My Morgan 30 sits behind my house in a canal on Florida's west coast. Since it's been so hot, we don't much use her in the summer, but our sailing season is coming up, and now I'm cleaning her up (again) and getting ready to sail, I note something worrisome.

She's down in the bow, off her lines a bit. I know this is a real phenomenon, because the cockpit doesn't drain properly to the rear into its scupper. There's no water in the bilge, and the bilge doesn't even go that far forward to make a difference.

What should I check? Please answer, any of you folks out there with any kind of ideas.

Send direct to me at John@calltheislanders.com

Thanks,
John

How big is your anchor and much chain have you got in the bow?

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
My Morgan has a small drain tube leading to the bilge from the anchor locker. I have found it pluged from debris that I have raised with my anchor. Has your anchor locker filled with rain water? Take care and joy, Aythya crew
