Morgan 43 CC or similar

I am ready to purchase my next boat, having sold my Pearson 323. The intended use is for Caribbean cruising and liveaboard for a couple of years. The current choice seems to be a Morgan 43 CC. I would like to get a smaller (approx. 38') boat, but may need space for all the extras, like dinghy, 2 kayaks, dive gear, etc, etc. I met one man who single-handed his Morgan 44 (almost the same boat, isn't it?) and was impressed with the value and utility of his boat.
Does anyone have info on any negatives to look for in this model? And equally important, any other alternatives to look at? I like the idea of a Bristol 41.1, but don't really like the galley arrangement. And I'm not totally sold on the CC, but definetely after having the pearson with the traveller in the cockpit want a boat that can have a proper cockpit enclosure.
Thanks for all replies.
Dwight
