North American 40 by Morgan

or Morgan NA 40
I went and took a quick look at one of these last weekend at the end of of a day of looking at boats when I should have been doing other things. Anyways...
I am interested in learning more about these.
It is a 40 foot boat with a 12''7" Beam and allegedly a 38''4"LWL(I suspect less, but maybe it is), 17000lb displacement 7''3" draft. Airex core in hull and deck built in 1979. Its a race boat somewhat converted to cruising.

I am a somewhat casual sailor. I like to go fast, but I also like to sail comfortably and I am mostly out on weekends and summer vacations. I am sailing in Washington and British Columbia so depth is not an issue, but light air is.
I do have asperations of someday going out into the Pacific down to Mexico or maybe across to see whats on the other side, but for now I will be local until the boat is paid for and finances are in order etc(Plus my insurance says I can''t for past Cape Scott or Cape Flattery or more than 15 miles offshore).

I know not many of these were built, but I am wondering what anyone knows regarding good and bad points or problems with these.

What did you find?

Ken,
Did you ever find out more about the North American 40? I'm going to put an offer on one (tomorrow?) but find precious little on the web about them. Where did you see that they used an airex core?

Na 40

I've been cruising/racing on an NA 40 for eight years. From what I know there are about a dozen left. They range in price and disrepair. The hull needs to have stringers installed to reinforce them length-wise. Very nice for cruising comfort and competitive racing. We have a one-design fleet here in Metro Detroit. John Barbour is the local authority on NA 40's.
