Picture of my Morgan in primer.

After many weeks of preperations I am finally ready for paint. She is primed and I have been sanding primer for the past two days. I'm shooting for Friday to have Awlgrip sprayed on then bottom paint. A few more things to do before going back in the water but should be ready to cruise soon.

Looking fine so far. I like the outfit. Probably will save a few brain cells. Isn't it amazing how large a boat expands once hauled out and blocked up. Send more pictures. we all love them so much.

Thanks Paul, I will post more picture's when it is all painted and tape removed. I am over budget on this vessel just like I knew it would be, but I think it's going to be worth it. That's not me wearing the suit, it's a professional painter, he is doing the easy work. Getting that fairly large boat ready for paint was a chore.

A little bit understated I think. It's a lot more boat than most anyone thinks until you try and deal with it.

She came out looking purdy good.

Just put a few coats of bottom paint on,tape is still on in this picture. New Awlgrip paint, She has a new Yanmar 125 hp (don't tell me I'm overpowered,I don't care)thats what I wanted. Spare main sail coming. Lots more gear being installed. I'm getting ready to cruise and she is all paid for. Much hard work went into my boat. Cheers

Great job. Looks excellent. I wouldn't have said 125Hp is over powered by the way. There are a few times I wish I had a "boost button" I could push.

Now that's a shiny boat!

Almost a shame to put her in the water

Absolutely beautiful! Like they say, the paint job is only as good as the prep work. Your hours and sweat really show here!

Your efforts 'really' paid off! Before we bought our boat, we looked long and hard at Morgans...and almost got one.

Having just painted the hull of our Morgan 35 I can appreciate the amount of time that goes into the prep and priming. The best part about it is pulling all of the tape and seeing the finished product.
We just finished priming and painting all of the interior bulkheads. Made a world of difference in the interior looks.

It's 1975 41 feet, beam 13'10". I added a swim platform,much easier to board from the dinghy so no I'm pushing about 43 feet. I still have to add my custom davits with mounting brackets for my three 80 watt solar panals that are installed in a frame. I have alittle more work top side but she is coming along just the way I want her. My max prop didn't get here in time for me to put it on in the yard so I will do it underwater,I had my shaft cut to accomidate it and also a fixed blade if need be. It's always something with a boat but I enjoy it. I have a diesel power boat also that I am pretty proud of also, I will post a picture of it too. Thanks for your interest.

Very Nice boat and very nice work, you should be proud. I just got my first Morgan she is a 1979 33 O.I. needs a bit of work but i feel i got a good deal. when i got the boat i thought i would have to repower it, but i found the machanic that worked on it last year and was told it needs about 8 houres of work. I plan to have the motor work done by a pro as i have never worked on a deisel. I hope to do as much of the other work myself. Time to time i may ask questions if you do not mind.

John
