Re: Morgan 35

I don't have my Morgan 35 anymore, but I thought someone might like to have a copy of the manual. When I bought the boat years ago, I was surprised that it had an original owners manual. You can download it here. But someone else that currently has this boat needs to get this and post it somewhere. I don't own this boat anymore.

camaraderie Kmax...size range? number of crew? price range? Have you checked the bluewater boat list sticky at the top of this thread?

aye aye captain!

Hey comrad. We're just looking to do some south pacific and pacific NW cruising. Looking in earnest for the right vessel at a good price. Any ideas?

Mucho Gracias, Kmax

Hey Dave:-)

Did you end up buying the morgan? Was the mast step ok? Did everyting check out? Curious because we're just looking at one now.

PS...if you did get this boat did you end up doing any blue water cruising in her?

Cheers, Kmax

Thanks for the advice on the cabin sole, I''ll add it to my list of things to inspect. The mast step seems like a problem to inspect but I''ll do what I can. I haven''t actually seen this boat I''m going on pictures and word of a friend, I''m going to inspect it in a week or two. As far as the bridge clearence the best I can get from the available info it''s 40'' the draft is 4''3" board up and 6'' board down.

Does anyone know a good surveyor in the northern MD area? - Thanks, Dave

If there is bilge access close enough to the step, you may be able to view it. My Morgan only had a small access to the bilge, closer to the engine compartment. It could be used to inspect where the CB penant attached to the CB. I ended up replacing the cabin sole, and put in better access to the bilge. That reminds me. You or your surveyor should pay attention to the cabin sole. Mine was 3/4" ply laminated on both sides with glass w/ a teak and holly floor above that. Water wicked into the plywood and the from the edges and the glass held the water in, allowing the floor to become pretty spongy.

If memory serves right (it was approx 15 yrs ago) I pulled a floorboard up aft of the mast and peered fwd with a flashlight. It was far away but I could see the aft side of the step. Now that I think about it that boat was the deep draft (5'')version without CB. I''m guessing the CB version couldn''t been seen this way.

What''s the draft and bridge clearance of the 35'' CB model?

Realistically, it would be pretty difficult to inspect without unstepping the mast and shining a flashlight down the hole in the head floor where the mast goes through to the step.

Thanks for the replys, I''m still in the negotiating stage with this boat and I will have a survey done. The mast step, rudder post and stuffing box will get a close look. From what you say the mast step will be hard to inspect, what is the best way to access that area? As it is an older (I don''t like to say old)boat I plan to do a lot of upgrading, as long as the basic boat is sound it will fit my needs perfectly, short crusing on the Chesapeake maybe down the ICW to FL. I''m semi retired, work 6 to 8 months out of the year. From what you indicate it will sail like my Pearson 35 that I sold 10 years ago and that will be fine for me. Thanks again for the replys. - Dave
