A Video Deck Tour of “Morgan’s Cloud”

Morgan's Cloud, Deck Tour

There are few things more interesting and useful to me than a tour of another experienced offshore voyager’s boat—there’s always something to learn.

So, in that spirit, here’s a video deck tour of our own Morgan’s Cloud.

Questions and Comments

We have deliberately kept the commentary—and therefore the video—short on the theory that you will only be able to stand seven minutes of me prattling on. So if you see something that interests you that I did not explain, please leave a comment on this post, not YouTube.

Links to Articles Discussed

During the video I mention several articles that explain some of the gear I cover. Here are links to those articles:

We have also replaced the Northstar GPS that I mention with a B&G plotter to backup the computer-based navigation system.
