As an alternative you could look at Island Packets as well. I am 6'2" and have ample of room in my IP 37. She has an overall length of almost 39' with a beam of 11'2" and a draft of 4'6" with her full keel. She is very safe and forgiving and can safely sailed from the cockpit. She is of 1997 vintage and has been splashed for the first time in 1998.
I am considering to sell Odyssey and step over to the catamaran side. If you are interested just sent me a message: email@example.com
I don't know where you live but are you planing to come to the Annapolis boatshow? Odyssey is in Annapolis right now and you might want to take a peek?
Best of luck

That Cal better be a good cruising boat as you are taking a "boatload' on your trip.
Donna and I will be watching your posts with interest so post a lot. We hope to join Tom and Kathy in a few years to the Bahamas, but will have to settle for Martha Vineyard , Newport and Block Island this year.
Fair winds and safe seas to you and Mary,

|labatt||I'm 6'2.5" and fit well in our Passport 40 (V-Berth forward version). There is enough room in the cockpit (and then some) to stretch out and sleep, and to stand up. The V-berth fits me well, and the interior (centerline) has enough room for me to walk around. It's not until I stand on port or starboard side of the cabin that there's an issue, and that's rare.|

There are a ton of mid-30 ft cruisers with 6'3" headroom, some with 6'4". More headroom can be found, but most of those are newer and longer boats.
As to your boat selection, the Catalina 36 has 6'3" or 6'4" headroom depending on the model year. The Pearson 38 has always been near the top of my "affordable boat list", slightly above the Catalina 36 as I like the lines a little better and believe it is a little more stoutly built. Both boats have similar dimensions, though the Pearson is laid out like the Cat 34 with an aft head and a larger v-berth (which I prefer).
The Cheoy Lees I've been in were pretty, heavy, boats with less headroom and interior space that comparably-sized alternatives. I would guess 6' headroom on the 32' that I was in. I don't know about the 38" Offshore.
C&C's of that vintage were good, fast cruisers. Interior space significantly less than the Catalina or Pearson you are looking at.
I would avoid the Hunter Legend. I've looked at some for sale and they were poorly built and not well maintained. I think Hunter has made some huge strides forward in recent years (2002+?) but I wouldn't buy an older one.
