    Hi,
    I have sold my Moody 27 and am interested in buying a Moody 36 (90) - preferably a bilge keel version.
    There seems to be many of the Fin & Shoal keel types available for sale but not so many of the bilge keel type?
    Does anyone know how many of the 118 built were of Bilge keel type. I have looked in the Technical section but unable to find the answer.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Not sure we will be able to help with this, Stephen. I did ask David Moody (who wrote an authorative history of the Moody marque) the same question about the S31 some years ago and I got the impression he doesn't have those figures at all.
    I bought a bilge-keel 36 this year and I do wonder how many there are.

    Thanks Dick for the prompt reply.
    I was just trying to check out the odds of getting a Moody36 bilge keel, which would be better suited for my local sailing area of the Bristol Channel.
    Oh well- I will keep scanning the ads.
    Cheers
