Hi new to this so hope this is the way to add a new post in the Morgan site.
I have a o/i 416 cc ketch on the hard
in guaymas at this moment. I need to replace the Bimini
and plexiglass c/c covers and windows. What I am considering is using the s/s frame and making a hard top using frp or other polyester resin product for the top. i would like to get other peoples input and if they have plans I would buy them so I wouldn't have to start from scratch. Guaymas Mex is on the Sea of Cortez
and quite a drive from where I live in Ca. I will be redoing the top side non skid and leaning towards sand for the skid part. Has anyone found anything they would suggest that works better?
Projects I have done. replaced heads. replaced side ports
, carpeting, found a way to add counter space in galley
, hatch lexan
ect ect. boats are projects. :-)
A little about Morgan 416. I have owned mine since 2006 and sailed her from San Diego
Ca as far as Columbia
and back. She is a fantastic live aboard and does quite well off the wind
. Steady 5 to 8 kns in a good breeze. As most morgan owners will testify going up wind
is a challenge. I left S/D in Dec 2006 and returned 2013. I am now planning on retiring in mexico
and living aboard
her until age gets the best of me. So yes I do like the boat but as most of us wish she would point a few degrees higher.
