Captain - sorry to hear that you guys have moved ashore, but it sounds like you actually lived and enjoyed the cruising life that so many of us only dream about. I've learned a lot from your posts over the years...bet you have enough stories and knowledge for a great book!

Re: Morgan Out Island 413,- Who Else is Active?

It's been a tumultuous week for us. After 45 years of liveaboard cruising we have moved off Aythya and put our 1973 Morgan on the market. My wife's physical limitations no longer allow her to do well getting on and off the boat or dealing with the companionway steps. Life remains an adventure. I was struck by the view of several beer bottles standing in my refrigerator on shore. Each time I open the door I notice that they are still standing proud,- 'guess I'll need to drink them.

Greetings fellow OI owners. Windseeker is a 1972 OI ketch walk-over 413 hull #56 out of Hamilton Ontario. She was in REAL rough shape when I got her. 12 years later and a complete and total refit later (nothing original left), we are heading south finally.

1982 41'OI Ketch. Bought her 3 months ago. Her new name is Windsent we call her Windy.
Lots of work to do (stopping those darn leaks and get rid of the foul odors) and a few upgrades then off to the islands.

Ahoy #66! My girlfriend and I am on the hard in Beaufort, NC taking care of all those fun used boat repair jobs. Add me on Facebook (search for my user name) and we can compare notes.

Hello all. I know this is an old thread but I stumbled on it while searching for information about my hull. My wife and I am the new owner of a Morgan 413-066 which will be called "ST MARY" after I update the USCG documentation. The boat is currently in Bay City, TX and her new home port is Brewers Island, MD. Any information on the boat anyone could give me would be much appreciated.

I must confess that I had this bearng put on the same time that I had a new Dripless Shaft Seal added & I was not attentive to the procedure, but it was on the hard. I do know that the bearing had to be machined some for a fit. 'sorry that I'm missing the details for you.

I did replace this bearing about four years ago with a VXB bearing part- ucf207-20 (code kit 11520) for my 1&1/4" shaft. Caution: I did need to take my new bearing to a machine shop to hone out the inside diameter a bit for a fit; however, I'm very pleased with the fit & function. I replaced the old bearing more for a caution due to noise than due to heat.

Hello all. I know this is an old thread but I stumbled on it while searching for information about my hull. I am the new owner of #61 which will be called "Basilica" after I update the USCG documentation. Any information on the boat anyone could give me would be much appreciated.
