Interesting topic. I believe that Murray Chris Craft was the prime manufacturer at Swansboro during that period and the 1980 through 1989 Catalina family and others shared the same mold with Uniflight.

It was built and operated by Uniflite until they went out of business. Chris-Craft bought some of the assets of Uniflite including some molds. Uniflite had bought some of the Pace Maker molds, and built some larger cruisers from those.

In 1973 I bought a new Uniflite that was produced at the plant. I was there many times, and knew many of the staff there.
