morgan 382 vs CM 38

We have been looking at morgan 382's but recently came across a 1970 charlie morgan 38 which has a centerboard. We plan on mainly using the boat for coastal cruising and on down to the bahamas and carribbean. But eventually we would like to make a few ocean crossings(i.e. to the south pacific). The centerboard is what primarily concerns me. I know the 382's handle well in rough weather and passages, but not sure how the cm 38's do. Would the centerboard be a problem in rough weather? Does anyone have experience with the CM38's?

Ireanbach - I have a Morgan 323 which is the little sister of the 382. Just to give you a heads up I had trouble last year when looking for information on older Morgans. There seems to be a lot out there on the Out Island version but not too much on the 323s/382s and Charlie Morgans.

Charlie Morgan does have a website though and I would give a try emailing him to see what he has to say about the center board.

Good luck with your purchase though!
