The Hinterhoellers were generally considered to be better built in all ways. My recollection is that the Carrolls are pretty crude down below. I don't know whether there was a design difference between the F3 (Hinterhoeller and the Frer 36).
If you are interested in an old IOR racer cruiser from that era, I would also suggest that you look for a Farr 37, which was a better boat in almost all ways.
