Re: New Morgan owner and cruiser

As a fellow 382 owner... welcome to the club! Is this the 6' draft boat from Rock Hall that's been advertised online?

I bought my '81 382 last March. I've cruised her quite a bit around the...

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

Have you tried it? I've seen this mentioned a few times around the net, but it gets mixed reviews.

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

It's an encapsulated lead keel. No bolts. I'll try to post some more pics of the boat. Here is a video from the pre-offer test sail.

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

I plan to haul her in the...

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

I just realized that I never followed-up with this post!!

I decided to buy the boat. The seller was willing to negotiate the selling price a bit - he wasn't going to pay for a peel, but his price...

Re: Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

Rob - Where did you find these prices? I don't remember saying it was in average condition. If I did, it was poor choice of words. It's certainly in much better condition than other bluewater capable...

Thanks for all of the replies. I plan to do as much work myself as possible. But blisters (and evaluating them) are new to me. My 3-5 year plan is to cruise, so I'm looking for a good/strong...

Blisters on survey - Morgan 38

Re: Morgan 382 Value

The average sale price of those listed above is around $42k. Deducting a 10% broker's fee, $37,800. Deducting premium for lack of equipment, sails, rigging... I'm leaning towards the low 30's.

I know this is a difficult question to answer, but what is a realistic price to pay for a 1981 Morgan 382 in excellent condition. Perkins diesel with 1440 hours. Very barebones in terms of equipment...
