I've only surveyed three CS40's and none of them had the fractured liner issues that sometimes appear on the Merlins so I don't think I have enough information to really form an opinion on them.

I have surveyed quite a lot of Merlins and I would not walk away from them due solely to the very common liner fractures at the dinette. These can sometimes be caused by poor venting/overfilling of the polyethylene water tank. However if the fractures appear between the hatch cutouts at the dinette and around the mast step, this is cause for caution.
