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. TALL RIG: I: 53.00' J: 16.75' P: 44.80' E: 16.80' Working SA: 820 sq.ft.
