I didn't see the anodized toerail (or toenail ) in any of the linked boats for sale but maybe it was a buyer's option or came in later model years? Either way, the Landfall would definitely be on our shortlist if we were to ever want to upgrade (and didn't hit the lotto first). Really like the layout and the performance. I imagine a lot of the owners have potted the stanchion base deck penetrations and rebedded the toerails by now if they've been problematic. It's certainly possible to find boats that have been better maintained than others.

I like the Ericsons too but I prefer the 38-200 that has the head aft. They didn't start making them until 86 so they tend to be pricier than the original 38.
