She performed well for us, probably could take more than we could. Safe for a 38? We thought so - ballasted full keel with cutaway forward. Construction - could have been a little heavier but it would not have altered anything. You just don't ever want to see any 38 pounding on the rocks - wood, metal, fiberglass will all break up quickly. We lived aboard almost 15 years on a 1977 model, hull number in 130's I think. About 10 years in Caribbean.
