Sally Morgan:

Comments on tacking the Morgan 41

My usual first sarcastic remarks to someone questioning the sailing characteristics of the Out Islanders is 'how much sailing experience have you had?' If you don't know how to sail a boat to weather anyway, it really doesn't matter does it?

Best we can determine, the idea that the Out Island 41's do not sail well evolved from a story Bill Robinson of Yachting Magazine wrote right after the first boats were out, and his comment was it didn't sail to weather like an ocean racer. It wasn't designed to.

I'll be interested in what comments you get to your note. I love the way they sail - they're fast reaching, extremely stable (don't round up in puffs), and fun to sail.

Just had to get my 2 cents in.

Raritan rudder position indicator

Boat Model - Morgan Sailboats: "We bought a 415 last April and found we could not back her at all -- turning sharply to port one time and then to starboard another time. Eventually, I determined that once the boat began moving backwards the water pressure captured the large rudder and overpowered the hydraulic steering, pushing the rudder to one side or the other. The secret turned out to be keeping the rudder as close to centerline as possible, and the key to that is a Raritan rudder position indicator. Cost me a couple hundred, installed it myself over a weekend. Sending unit attaches to the quadrant under aft berth and it sends electrical info to an indicator on the binnacle. What a difference it made. I pull up to a slip, turn to get my alignment, center the rudder according to the indicator and just back right in. I recommend it.
We concur with all your comments on how much we love our 415. We're not racers, but we sail whenever there's air and tack fine without using engine power. In very light air, we just fall off ten degrees toward a reach to maximize speed then tack as soon as the boat's moving nicely. Wouldn't want to be without our Morgan; beats the tar our of our old Irwin 37."

Trip Distance

I did a pretty good estimate of the distance from Mar Marina in Tarpon Springs to our dock through Pass-A-Grille Channel and come up wiht 38.9 NM. At 6.5 knots that's six hours transit time.

It's Possible was in Charter!

I think we can blame the damaged interior on Charter business. It was in charter in Tarpon Springs through Seacoast Yacht Charters.
