Re: Cracked Mast

I spoke with Eastport Spars and Rigging, and they suggested that a weld is likely the way to go. Of course, they were responding to my verbal description of the problem. I'm very leery of having it...

Cracked Mast

I found a hairline crack on my mast at the lower shroud hound. It appears as though the compression tube weld has failed... I'm guessing corrosion. Otherwise, the stick seems to be in pretty good...

We're prepping our boat for an extended cruise. I've wanted a Monitor Windvane for quite some time. We scored an absolutely fabulous deal on one at the Annapolis Boat Show last weekend. The one we...

Unstep Mast

I pulled my Morgan 382 out of the water today. I need to unstep my mast because I'm replacing the standing rigging, removing/inspecting the chainplates and doing some other work on the mast. My yard...

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

SJ34 - Before you fixed them, did you notice that the blisters got worse over time? Or, did they progress to a certain point and then stop.

Re: Blister Repair Conundrum

I'm hauling the boat this weekend, and it will spend the winter on the hard. I've considered repairing them on a case by case basis. I'm not worried about the boat sinking, but I'm concerned that if...

Re: port window gasket material

I used butyl tape to bed my Newfound Metals stainless steel ports. That's what they recommend, and I haven't leaked a drop. I'm convinced.

Alright, I own a 1981 Morgan 382 with a mild case of blistering on the starboard side of the hull. There are several dozen dime sized blisters scattered about - primarily on the starboard side....

Re: Holding Tank Woes

I've no complaints about the design. However, I do think that a non-mechanical sensor is better. Given the age of the system, I'm sure what I currently have was common technology at the time of...

Re: Holding Tank Woes

All great ideas!!! I like the idea of the bacteria... sort of like a septic tank system. I'm also curious about the composting heads. Frankly, it comes down to cost. If I can fix the float cheaper...

Re: My New Cruising Blog

Thanks for the tip and the compliment, Mark. Yes, I've read that too many people spend too much time/month on the refit. I'm trying to remain cognizant of that fact as work my way through the list....

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...

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.
