The C&C 38 comes in 2 versions, both are great boats. The major difference is the interiors. One is the Landfall the other is regular. Interestingly enough the stanchions may differ boat to boat. Many older boats which have stanchions buried in the side gunnels/deck have issues. The second way the C&C did stanchions is they connected them to the anadozed toe rail. My C&C 35 MKIII are like that. Unique to C&C . It's a great design as you never have to worry about the stanchion bedding issue which plagues many olde Bo's and all boats eventually. So what you look for on the 38 is whether it has a teak Captainl over the joint or an anadozed toenail. The anadozed toenail being he preferred. c&C had excellent deck to hull luck and design. My bolts are 6" apart.
