We are planning to splash a 1968 hull completely rebuilt. We gutted the boat and install all NEW every thing... We have never sailed her or even seen it in the water. So the question.
The boat is a Morgan 33 classic

What things would you push/test to the limit during a sea trial.

We built this boat to travel through the Caribbean for the next 3 years.

Re: System check new boat sea trial

For that mission, what you need to do has probably already been done: new standing and running rigging, sails and engine overhaul if needed.

I would take the rigger/sailmaker out on a sail with you in heavy winds and let him tune the rigging and make sure that the sails are working right. Other than that, do the things any buyer/surveyor would do on a seatrial.
