    John,

    Sorry to hear you are selling your boat, but speaking from experience, you will get over it. Yet here I am checking the site every day even though i no longer have mine! the Morgan 38ers is a great community and there is always something to learn on this site.

    Your boat is terrific and certainly rigged to go faster than your average Morgan. Someone will get a great boat.
    Your youtube videos helped me decide to get mine when i originally contemplated getting it so seeing those will no doubt help a potential buyer appreciate your boat.

    All the best, Peter.

    Wow. John, I'm sorry to hear about this. I wish you the best on the health stuff ... and that you have fun & satisfying experiences as you move on to other things. And wow, that seems like a bargain basement price for a boat that has obviously been well cared for ... the sails alone seem like they are worth half that price ;-)

    For sure keep us posted on how it's going ...
    Cheers,
    -Mark

    You may feel the same but when you love your boat in the way nothing else compares you want to sell it to someone that really cares about the boat like we do and the previous 2 owners.
    The original owner lives in Florida and still comes to see her as does the second owner. It’s a very special boat ...a lot of very very good memories for all who have had the pleasure of sailing her. She’s a happy boat, most, when being sailed and enjoying the company of its occupants. I’m sure many understand.

    Holy cow!! I didn't expect to see this. Sorry to hear, John. I know how much you two love sailing... and sailing your Morgan. Best of luck with the sale, though I suspect it will go quick. She's a great boat!

    Thank you Ken. I have some physical problems that have gotten worse this last year making just getting around very difficult. If I could mount a wheel chair and electric controls I would. :))

    John: very sorry to hear about your situation. At this
    time there are also a number of physical problems that are slowing us immeasurably as well. We hope to be able to conquer that for next season, but frankly who knows?

    I am sure Wild Oats will have no trouble finding a new home, as you know I know the boat from the previous owners. She was in great shape then, end it looks like you've only improved it, in appearance and with sailing equipment.

    Good luck with whatever you're dealing with it.

    Dick

    This is good news. Giving up the boat is not an easy decision. I thank my wife and sons for talking me out of making a rash decision. Even after a summer of not so good weather, we still enjoyed the boat and the sailing. As Dick says, we all have physical limitations, but that doesn't mean we have to give up our lifestyles.

    Yes...I can barely get on her (the boat) at its mooring but once there I never want to leave. :)

    John and Jim,

    I am glad to hear you gents are sticking with your boats.

    For me it was a tough call to sell our beloved Pearson 39 we had for 25 years. The kids grew up on it, it was our home away from home, tons of memories, I knew it inside and out. But we weren't using it much anymore. And every time I was doing all the work, raising the main, trimming the sails, doing the maintenance. The shoulders squawked, the hips complained, the back cried out. So I sold it.

    But then we found our Morgan project and a great transition away from our Pearson. It helped us not to look back with regret. We found a new love and this great community (I still check this site often). But still, I was doing all the work, we weren't using it too much, the growing fam damily (kids with their own kids) proved it wasn't the place everyone wanted to be.

    So along came a more practical for us solution on the dark side. I do manage to get a sailing fix racing on a friend's boat. But I can say cocktail hour sunsets take on a whole new vista from a flybridge. Likewise driving the boat in a comfy seat. And there must be three times the space per linear foot for the gang to hang. And way more comfort.

    I am fortunate and glad I had my time with my pearson and my morgan. But find I am quite happy with the new ride. The first mate is arguably even happier. There can be boating life after our boats go to new loving homes. Just different.

    Peter
