We've never been impressed with much of the Morgan line of boats, but the is something of an exception in an otherwise undistinguished history. The is a big, clunky, center cockpit ketch also available as a sloop that, unlike the rest of the Morgan series, is fairly heavily built at 30, lbs.
A weight-to-length ratio of 2: Our survey example was an aging model that had had a very rough life of more than a decade of neglect in the Bahamas, yet the owners still hadn't managed to destroy it.
The primary virtue of this aging design is a well-built hull and deck structure. The hull is a solid laminate while the deck is balsa cored and, despite all kinds of abuse such as a lot of holes drilled in the deck and badly attached fittings, still hadn't gone soft.
We jumped and stomped around on it, raising eyebrows all over the marina with the racket we were making, yet still couldn't find any weakness. The gel coat was completely gone in places, along with the nonskid decking pattern, and showing a tremendous number of gel coat voids, and revealing at least one reason why Morgan Yachts has such a problem with blistering.
The laminating quality is rather pitiful. The boat was never hauled and we didn't get a look at the bottom. Among other nice things we can say about is that the chain plates are bolted to the hull sides rather that to plywood bulkheads that inevitably rot out from leaks, so this was not a problem.
The rig is well setup and generally without fault. We did find some breakage around the fiberglass structure of the main mast step, but it had been that for years without falling apart. The water then runs out onto the cabin sole where it not only rots out the sole, but the bulkheads, partitions and cabinetry, making for very costly repairs.
As with nearly all Morgan boats, the installation of plumbing and electrical is also pitifully amateurish and sloppy.
The main panel is okay, it just everything after the panel that's the problem. Things like wiring laying in the bilge and wrapped around plumbing. It almost seems as if the builders go out of their way to make service difficult by by burying sea strainers, sea cocks and bilge pumps under engines or otherwise making them nearly impossible to reach.
This one had a generator and air-conditioning, making the engine room doubly cramped. Morgan has always had problems with creating a cockpit that doesn't leak a water fall of water onto the machinery and electrical stuff, and this one was no different.
Water was pouring in through the steering pedestal because Morgan never bothered to put cofferedams around the control cable opening.
They felt that just caulking the base of it was enough which, when the cockpit inevitably fills up, never is. The engine, of course, was a ball of rust because of it.
The engines in these boats always seem to be having a lot of problems. Perhaps that is because the exhaust riser is too high, runs virtually straight up, and causes too much exhaust back pressure. The engines are also low to the bilge where the starter and transmission gets wet when the one and only bilge pump fails.
Plus engine mounts that rust, cause the engine to sag and throw the shaft out of alignment so the the stuffing box leaks even more water, thereby perpetuating the cycle of leakage and water damage. Since the engine room is the place where boaters spend a lot of their boating careers, systems installations like this won't make life any easier.
Yet this was the least of the worries so far as leaks go. This boat, along with most of the rest of the Morgan line, is little more than a floating sea strainer. All it does is filter the water as it passes through the decks, port holes and hatches, and all the other places where the builder does not know how, or care, to make a proper seal.
A large part of the teak veneered plywood interior is rotted out because of it. It had rained heavily just the day before the survey and the interior was just swimming in water - even the stove top was flooded.
Cushions and mattresses were water soaked and rotting. Every port hole and hatch leaked, none of which was due to flexing decks. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that the cabin soles are taped into the hull sides.
This means the water leaking in through the deck joint runs down the hull side and out onto the cabin sole where the sole then proceeds to rot.
This is a standard feature of most of the Morgan line that comes at no additional charge. If you could figure a way to stop the leaks, this would be a fairly decent boat.
But to do that, you have to just about dismantle and remove everything on the deck, including the toe rail, and that's not a project many would have the fortitude - or perhaps the foolishness - to tackle. How does she sail? When you crash into a coral head, the coral head is just as likely to be the looser.
For the industrious bargain hunter, this one is a possibility to get a lot for a little, but if you want a dry bed at night, you are going to have a lot of work to do. This boat is not a serious choice for someone looking for a boat that's ready to go.Start studying Essentials of systems analysis and design.
