Nelson Marek 43
You are most welcome. Sorry for any confusion on my part.
As for Morgan vs Catalina, I think you are quite correct. Morgan was not bought by catalina until the late 80''s, certainly after 1986. I personally believe that Morgan built a strong boat. I base this solely on my inspection of several Morgan 382''s (which unfortunately were not finished very well).
I have read good things about the Morgan 43 CC and have seen them come down in price as of late. There is one on the market asking 99k. The posts I have read have stated that the boat is built quite well. As mentioned, I have read only one negative post about its sailing ability and that was from someone who chartered one (probably should never judge a boat by any charter).
Best of luck
