I owned a '71 M35 new, delivered in Tampa. Do to a collosal mess up with the layup
schedule, ended up in a prolonged law suit with Morgan
. This was probably a one time occurence but resulted in a very thin hull
on the stbd half. Other than that the boat sailed nicely even without the board down. Had a very nice cruise
up from Tampa to Norfolk and cruising C bay.
The only other thing that was an issue was electrolysis
problems with the C/B cable. Even though everything was bonded and put together the way the experts say, it would eat up the cable, even monel, in about 6 months. From my conversations with Morgan
, I got the feeling that it wasn't an unusual occurence. Electrolysis
was specifically excluded from the warranty. Electrolysis didn't seem to effect any other underwater fittings on the boat. If you find this is a problem, switching to one of the new synthetics should cure the problem.
