Glad to hear about some morgan 35's out there, anyone know how many were built?
I have hull #126 from 1972 with a good history of uscg documents for most of her life. She is now our perminant home for the last 6 months.

For those thinking of making a handle for the Morgan roller boom, here are a few photos of the original.
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Does anyone in this thread still owns an M35?
I am looking to purchase an m35 1971. I honestly have a few concerns and would like to ask owners ( or prior owners) about their general experience with the vessel. What to look out for while inspecting it.
1st of all the boat is in the water which there are a lot of things down there that will have to be purchased without inspection. The current owner says that there is no damage down there whatsoever. Also, I noticed that the transom was very thin. Was the transom in yours was very thin as well? I mean the one I inspected was less than a quarter inch thick of fiberglass. How was your experience with that centerboard? The winch of the centerboard is located, in the one I am inspecting, below the port side bench in the cockpit which does not have door/hatch in the bench to access it, to work the winch i believe you will have to crawl into the rear hatch behind the cockpit. Then it goes to a pipe under the engine which makes it even harder to know the real condition of the cable down there. Is that how it was set up in yours?
Did you changed the mast step? The one I am looking at has it very corroded. And to make the work in there it will have thru be done thru the mast hole or break the flooring in the cabin. Any advise on that as well, lol. If we could talk over the phone for a few minutes it would help me and my wife a lot. 1 st purchase an lots of butterflies in my belly righgt now. Lol

I made one out of electric conduit with some slots cut in one end and a rod inserted in the other end. I then found one at a consignment shop so now have both. my outhaul looks like the end of a rod with a pin sticking out on both sides. I am not sure if the hex fitting listed above is a different boom.
Another note our boom is a roller reefing boom and the crank does this also.

Crank for Outhaul
I still have the crank -- it also works the centerboard winch (which has lost its sprocket).
I've been thinking I need a spare and was going to try one of two things:
1) a 3/8" Allen wrench, preferably a long one
2) A Stanley awning window crank handle with a piece of 3/8" hex bar epoxied in.
I've tried around the web for a crank handle with a hex end without any luck.

I have a Morgan Outisland 41 with the same boom set-up, does anyone know were I can get a crank for the outhaul?

Now you've got me curious. I will have to see what mine is.

Morgan 35 Tall Rig
I have the owners manual and it has the Tall Rig dimensions as:
I = 43.25
P = 38.25
E = 15.0
versus a standard rig of:
I = 40.75
J = 13.67
P = 35.83
E = 15.0
My boom has been shorten so the end of it is directly above the wheel pedestal, E is approximately 13'-6". I had new sails made and it measured out very close to the tall rig except for the foot of the main.
