I am going to look at this 1969 38 today. If you can believe the photos it should be pretty clean. It has a pair of CM 454 350 hp and 1,650 on the hr meters. Looks like factory stock interior layout with newer upholstery. Can anyone fill me in on what to look for on a walk thru / survey and sea trial? WOT speeds, performance numbers other info ??? Given the year windows and tanks would be a concern I suspect. We recently moved and sold a 1970 Canoe Cove Pilot house we restored. We didn't think it would do well moving up the coast from San Diego to Seattle.Would really like to find a nice Commander.... maybe got lucky...will know soon.
there is a gen set and an electric stove and an electric heater. What percentage of boats had that in lieu of propane? The cockpit and fly bridge deck have the Teak slats. Is this an area of concern for soft decks?
