New Project 'Coaster'

Post by efkirton »

Coaster just landed in my backyard, a 1977 Morris in need of a serious 'cosmetic' rehabilitation.

The interior is also pretty rough.

Hello Eric and congrats on the new project. Looks like more of a blank slate which will allow you to finish to your own
preferences. Is this the boat that was in Haddam CT ?

Best to luck and please post on your progress.

Sincerely

Hello Eric,

I thought the boat looked familiar. Glad she found a home... pretty depressing to see her there going to seed.

I have a number of sails , some tanbark , main, jib staysail and 2 headed drifter for the asking if you are interested.

You may have to adapt the luff depending on your situation.

Sincerely yours,

Mark

Coaster has been renamed AURORAL-coaster, complete enough to be in the water but still a work in progress.

Nice job on the new flush deck configuration and the interior modifications! Did you install a sheer clamp to support the new deck or did you use the already molded in railing lip and mount the new beams to that (on the underside)? I'm curious because I now have to remove and replace my entire deck - it's not salvageable.

Wow!
I just reviewed the pictures. You have done a miraculous job re imagining the deck. I like the gentle curve. You should forward the pictures to Chuck as I am sure he would appreciate your efforts.
If I am ever in the area, I would love to pop by for a look

Great looking work and progress. Glad you had the initiative and imagination to take her from the yard in CT and
give her a new life.
