Hello from new member Thebaysailor

Digging deep into your extensive knowledge base in advance of my trip to survey a 1979 Morgan 461 in St. Thomas next week.
Anyone out there with strong, supported, opinion or observations on the 461 please fire off a message to me.
Looking forward to joining the on the water cruising community in the fall. In the meantime I'm boating and sailing on Georgian Bay north
Of Parry Sound, Ontario. Cheers.

Re: Hello from new member Thebaysailor

Welcome, Sorry I cant afford any advice on the 461 you're about to look at. I do however wish you luck. I am more of a small boat guy, I am broke, but dream someday of owning and sailing something larger until I think about the cost....Again good luck

Re: Hello from new member Thebaysailor

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I can't offer any expert opinion but have heard that older Morgans are strong boats.
kind regards,
