Default Considering a 38 or 42.

Home lake is LOTO. Currently have a 33 Outlaw.

Wanted to get some idea on ride quality in the 38 and the 42...and any other major differences other than length. 42's seem to be a bit more scarce. A number of 38's for sale currently. I see 38 SS and 386 sts, different boats?

Anything anyone can add would be greatly appreciated...even if it's directing me to another boat. Also seeing a few 37 Stilettos for sale that peaked my interest. If anyone at LOTO has a 38 I can check out I would be forever grateful!

Spectacular boat! Only about $200k out of my budget. LOL. I'm definitely looking at older boats.

35 and 38 share same cabin size, 42 and 45 also the same but bigger than the 2 previous ones, i was told...
cockpit are all the same apparently, except my 45 has a larger cockpit and engine hatch is long enough to be able to sleep on it!
those 2 last bigger space convinced me !

The 2005 386 STS is mine that was just listed. Trailer never submerged as I had the boat lifted off for launching and hauling. Boat when used it was kept on a lift.
