Forgot to add to my first post, I've sailed a bit on an A38 that was slipped down in Freeport. Loved the boat - the absolute alter-ego of my Bristol. You're all correct that it doesn't have the room of typical 38 of the day, but, the only thing I didn't like was the chart table on this one was a tall, stand-up table with no way to sit down.
That notwithstanding, you can go anywhere you are crazy enough to go, in this boat.
s/v Paloma, Bristol 29.9, #141
Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
