The Hughes 38 was a Sparkman and Stephens design # 1903. They can be reached at Sparkman & Stephens Yacht Design, Naval Architects, Yacht Sales and Yacht Charters You may be able to get design drawings from Sparkman and Stephen's archives. That should show pretty much everything that you need.

A version of the same design was built by Hinckley. There is an image of the Hinckley version on SailBoatData.com showing one of the tanks HINCKLEY 38 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com.

For what its worth, I seriously doubt that your boat was built in 1983. Hughes went bankrupt around 1980-81 or so and the company that bought the assets did not make any of the 38's. It would be helpful to accurately determine the year your boat was made since the design changed quite a bit over the years.

My guess is they bought it as a kit and completed it in 83, I believe they are supposed to register it as the year the hull was made. But I can see someone who spent 8 or 10 or more years working on finishing a boat wanting it to "brand new" when they registered it.
