your 40-42´ bluewater cruiser
I know I will catch some heat here from the local chapter of I love my Morgan, but I at best I think of old Morgans as being good liveaboards and OK down island boats but to me, most of them are by no stretch my idea of a ''blue water cruiser. In my opinion the two closest models are the 43 and 45 but these are bigger than the range requested in the original post. Yes I know a lot of folks have done all kinds of wonderful things with old Morgans. I am thrilled for them and delighted that they were able to do what they did. It still does not make an old Morgan a blue water boat in my book.
