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.

Maybe all the Landfalls have them and the 38 regulars dont. 38 regular C&C is a good boat for cruising if you are loking at Eriksons and Irwins. Salis nice and quick also.
