Anyone Sail on a Morgan 60ft Outislander

Wonder how they sail and anythings to look for in the build.
The one Im looking at has had all wire rigging replaced and lots more.
I think the main hull is all fiberglass on these boat and the lead in the keel
molded into the fiberglass keel. Is that right?
I like not having wood in the hull even if it makes it heavy.

Sure, no cored hull, but balsa sandwiched in the deck. Be aware that these boats are not "Outislanders", but the Morgan Out Island. There is such a vessel as an Islander, but no Outislanders.
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I read a good article about them a few years ago. I believe was in Cruisinfg Helmsman magazine. Schooner rig with two mainsails the same size? I believe the summary was that mostly motored sailed in less than 15 knots of wind.
