Need help identifying mystery boat

Greetings. When I was young, my father, brother and I sailed a Coronado 23 in Door County (Fish Creek to be specific). We were docked behind this beautiful boat and I can't identify the manufacturer. My father has since passed away after finishing his sailing days on a Catalina 36. The photo is dated 1973 and I'm hoping someone can identify this boat. thank you in advance.

Certainly has the air of an Alberg 37. Same era, nice lines.

I believe she's an Alden, 1970's vintage.

I BELIEVE we may be looking at a Morgan 42-2 in that shot. Beautiful boat.

Did I get the lobster bib and oven mitt?
Actually I am only 90% sure, maybe it's the angle or the shape of the windows, but something says a different boat, just not sure which... the Morgan is most likely though IMO
