Why would someone choose a 38 TG over a 39 TG?

I do believe the 39 was 100% new from bottom up! I believe it is a little over a foot longer & was built 2 do stag'd engines/balance!!

The 38 handles big power just fine. The big advantage to the 38 over the 39 for me was the cockpit space. The 38 is way more roomy for passengers if thats the way you use the boat. We use the boat for poker runs and just a pack it with company and go for lunch boat. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Try working on a 38 with big power....OUCH!

Tank I'm gettin your A$$ out on the boat in Havasu!!
