North American 40 by Morgan

or Morgan NA 40
I went and took a quick look at one of these last weekend at the end of of a day of looking at boats when I should have been doing other things. Anyways...
I am interested in learning more about these.
It is a 40 foot boat with a 12''7" Beam and allegedly a 38''4"LWL(I suspect less, but maybe it is), 17000lb displacement 7''3" draft. Airex core in hull and deck built in 1979. Its a race boat somewhat converted to cruising.

I am a somewhat casual sailor. I like to go fast, but I also like to sail comfortably and I am mostly out on weekends and summer vacations. I am sailing in Washington and British Columbia so depth is not an issue, but light air is.
I do have asperations of someday going out into the Pacific down to Mexico or maybe across to see whats on the other side, but for now I will be local until the boat is paid for and finances are in order etc(Plus my insurance says I can''t for past Cape Scott or Cape Flattery or more than 15 miles offshore).

I know not many of these were built, but I am wondering what anyone knows regarding good and bad points or problems with these.

Ken
