opinions on morgan 32

We have just purchased a 1981 morgan 32 after not sailing for about 15 years. Does anyone have any advice or opinions?

Congratulations on your purchase. I don't know much about morgans but I found a couple of web sites that might be helpful.

My first boat was a Morgan 32. It's a great boat. Solid, good performance and simple. The only complaint is that the prop shaft is off-center which makes for some hellacious prop walk in reverse. I found that it was generally easier to at least partially walk it out of the slip before engaging reverse.

I spent many a weekend single handing the boat. I could sail with full main and a 130 in up to about 18 knots but the weather helm got pretty fierce. If I either tucked a reef in the main or changed to a working jib of 100%, she balanced out wonderfully.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll enjoy her.
