Tankage: Fuel: 40, Water: 55
Over the past several years, this boat has been professionally refitted -- new Lee sails, new Anderson 46ST 2-speed self tailing winches, new cabin cushions, new wiring, new thru-hull ball valves, fittings and hoses, new cutlass bearing, repack shaft stuffing box, repack rudder stuffing box, new port lights with rain hoods -- all the items that make her faster, safer, more comfortable and easier to handle.
The mid-cockpit traveler was moved onto the cabin roof and upgraded to a Harken traveler. All the running rigging (main sheet, topping lift, reefing lines and main halyard are now led aft from the mast to the cockpit for safety and to enable the boat to be single-handed more easily.
Moving the traveler from the cockpit also made the cockpit safer and more comfortable as well as enabling the installation of a full Bimini top, new in 2004. In addition to the Bimini, it has a dodger and a full custom awning that stretches from the mast to the stern (for all-weather docktail parties).
Main Cabin: The layout is standard. On entering the cabin, to the port side, there is a U-shape galley consisting, clockwise, of an Alder-Barbour refrigerator-freezer, Galley-maid stainless alcohol stove and oven, storage bins, and double stainless sink with pressure hot & cold fresh water and manual fresh and salt water spigots. To starboard, is the chart table and oversized quarter berth, beneath which are stored the starting and house batteries.
Moving forward to port is an L-shaped settee with centerline table, which converts to a double bed. To starboard is a settee and behind it is a "pilot's berth," designed for a very small pilot, but excellent for a child to sleep in as it has sides to prevent a kid from falling out of bed in rough seas.
Moving forward to port is the head which consists of a manual toilet (and holding tank; sink and a separate shower. To starboard is a hanging locker and storage space.
Forward cabin: The main sleeping compartment consists of a large vee-bunk with insert; drawers and shelves, and an opening hatch. There is a lot of dry storage under the vee-bunks
The interior of the boat is all original teak woods and veneers in excellent condition as are the headliner and cushions.
Hull: The hull is in great condition, solid and strong as only Morgan made them. The was recently painted with ablative paint that is good for two years of minimal bottom cleaning as the slime and barnacles just flake off with the paint.
Sails and rigging: Primary: Lee Sails -- Dacron main, 130 genoa and storm jib, new in 1999, all in excellent condition. Lee genoa is affixed to the double track Furlex roller furling system. Also, there are two more mains and one more Genoa in good condition. Standing rigging and turnbuckles are oversized and in good condition.
Running rigging is all new in 2004. Rigging has been enhanced for offshore voyaging by setting two main halyard and two jib halyards on the mast that are led back to the cockpit.
Electrical/Electronics: Freedom 1500 watt inverter; a Garmin GPS/Chartplotter; a Heart Interface panel/battery conditioner; a 140 amp alternator; two new ('05) marine starting batteries; a bank of four Trojan deep cycle "golf-cart" type batteries ('05); a Simrad (Robertson) 300 CX chorus autopilot; a Humminbird depth sounder and a Standard marine stereo.
Wind speed and direction gauges were tired and have been disconnected in anticipation of getting new equipment compatible with the existing Simrad/Robertson autopilot which is capable of steering by wind direction in addition to steering by the compass heading or GPS instructions.
Engine: Yanmar 3QM30F #82067 - this is the original 33 h.p. engine that has approximately 1800 hours on it and runs perfectly. It pushes the boat comfortably at six knots. Transmission: Kanzaki reduction 2.03:1 Propeller: 16X11 RH.
The 382 offers, without a doubt, the most boat per dollar that you could possibly buy. 382s are sea kindly, meaning they handle rough seas with ease, are so well balanced they can be trimmed to steer themselves without the autopilot.
It took a while, but I finally sold my boat, thanks to your free ad.
I just sent off a donation. Keep up the good work.
