I do know the difference between a Morgan 25 and a Morgan 24. Charley named it a 24 and when the Breatrice Company bought into it, they renamed it a 25. It measures 24'11". When I tried to tell the registration people it was a 24, they weren't buying it. But in the old days, if you didn't have another full foot, that meant something! Kind of like the 9.9 outboards, not being a 10 hp. What is this world coming to?

Does anyone know what this means? "OFF. NO. 512983 NET 5" It's written along the aluminum piece over the cabin door, on the forward side, in huge letters.

Thanks
