Notes

First 2 boats raced in the SORC of 1970, one owned by the designer.
Some differences between the MORGAN 42-2 and the earlier version are as follows:
The propeller is in front of skeg (instead of within a skeg cutaway), a slightly deeper keel, and slightly different rig. Diesel engine avail. as an option.
Sloop or yawl.
Thanks to ‘windtoyiv’ for updated information.

J: 16.75’
