Wow, we own a Morgan 384 that Charlie designed. I am sure my husband would LOVE to say hi to him, I will PM you for his number.

Chris:
Yes, there is that but traditions are important and just maybe your wife is a good sport. Actually you can get by substituting any boobs on CA.

I got the impression talking to Charlie that he would be happy talking to anyone. If you pm me I could give you his number and you could give it a shot. Charlie is an old hero of mine and I had met him many years ago when I first stood on a Valiant 40 at the Nap show. I was probably 30 years old. It seemed a bit odd swapping stories with him like we were old buds.

I talked to Charlie Morgan for an hour yesterday. He is 83 now and doing quite well. He has taken up painting.

If you go to that scary place called Cruising Anarchy (hide your wife and children) there is a thread there specific to Morgan designs. It could be that someone there could help you. There is at least one old add posted.

It is kind of an intriguing question. Let us know how you get on with it.

Any ideas on how/where I might find this? It's probably a long shot I realize, but any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Check this site - huge number of brochures.

Oh! I just had a brainwave. Morgan Yachts was purchased by Catalina Yachts, and they are still in business. Try e-mailing or calling them and see what they can do for you.

Chris n Cate,

Wow. That's a tall order! Have you talked with the librarians in your local library? I'd talk to a senior librarian in your local library. They are there to help you find stuff, after all. Further, libraries have a means of borrowing from and exchanging with each other and will help each other find information. It's normally for articles, but why couldn't it be for ads?

I have a hazy memory of using an index of journals and periodicals mumbledy years ago when I was back in grad school. It should tell you what was being published in the time period. If the librarians are not willing to search page by page for you, how about starting by fetching the index of advertisers from 10 years worth of a given journal, maybe?

On the other hand, maybe you could just write the editors of Sailing Magazine.

Regards,

Tom
