Re: Morgan Heritage 1 Ton ?

There was both a Morgan One Ton and a Heritage One Ton, both designed by Charlie Morgan. The Morgan One Ton had a very strange keel that raked back at a very steep angle. The Heritage One Ton had a typical IOR Trapazoid. I think both were sold as 36 footers.

Re: Morgan Heritage 1 Ton ?

Late post but another happy Heritage 1-ton owner. I bought "Varmint" in Muskegon, MI. I bought it in 1994 from John Wright. I am the third owner. My wife and I have enjoyed Varmint for many years. We made the trip from Lake Mich to Florida and the Gulf with 3 trips to the Bahamas. Varmint has returned to Mich and now slips at Arcadia, Mich. I would be happy to email you some pics and share what little I know.

Re: Morgan Heritage 1 Ton ?

I also own one of these amazing boats. I'm interested in finding out what the design below decks was as it came from the factory. Anyone have some drawings or pics?

Re: Morgan Heritage 1 Ton ?

I own one of the Heritage one tons, she was originally called "Seagull" and was sailed out of Ft. Myers, Florida. She is a great boat and loves the wind.
Just an FYI, there were only 20 of these hulls built in the Clearwater facility. Who knows what would have happened if there had not been a fire.

Re: "Silmaril" at dock...

Molds for a rudder.
You posted this long time ago but remembered readying you have or had the Molds for a Heritage One tone rudder.
I am presently replacing my Rudder on my Heritage and would it be fantastic if those molds did not end up in a dumpster somewhere.
The original lasted 40 years so no complaints.
My fabricator finfab in Ca can for sure make one from an updated design that they do have molds for alas the original did work very well and I would rather not gamble that a newer design is an improvement if it in the end turns out to not be as good as hoped for.
The original will work and that a fact I would like to stick with.
If you still follow the forum please be kind to send me a note.
Or call my cell :510 387 3494

Thank you so much

Re: Morgan Heritage 1 Ton ?

Hi Kim,

I'm looking at pulling the rudder and replacing the rudderstock on my Heritage 1 ton this spring. Mine has an aluminum rudderstock that has corroded beyond what I'm comfortable with. The shaft is schedule 80 pipe (1/2" thick wall rather than solid).

I'm considering opening up the rudder, putting in a new rudderstock, and closing it up again. Also looking at a new bearing set as part of the project. Working on the replacement rudderstock design. Not yet sure about a hollow vs a solid shaft (which many Heritage 1 tonners have). I have access to titanium pipe and may go that route. The schedule 80 aluminum one has lasted 30 years or so.

If you'd be willing to share how your rebuild went, I'd appreciate gaining some wisdom from you experience.
