Are you talking about the Starett & Jencks 45? (built from the molds of the orginal Morgan 45)

My records indicate that around 12 of the original Morgan version were built. (To my eye, this was a beautiful, pre IOR, weatherly looking boat. Very narrow beam. Not typical of a Morgan design. The hull seem far from ideal for the charter trade.  I have seen a brochure for the S&J version but it did not include much other than the photo that you see here.
I was in contact with a man a while back who was restoring a completely gutted, and rigless S&J 45 that he found abandoned somewhere. I think it was the center cockpit version. You can do a search here to discover his contact information. He sometimes checks in at the plasticclassics forum. There were some pictures also.  www.plasticclassics.com.  That's about the best info I can provide at the moment.
