Cheoy Lee Offshore 38 or 41?

I'm looking to take on a project boat; the top contenders are both Cheoy Lee Offshore Richards models; one 38, the other a 41.

Both appear to need the same amount of work. All things being equal, which would you choose?

The 38 will be somewhat cheaper, presumably faster and easier to single hand; are these minor differences or a big deal?

With the 41; I figure if I'm going to go thru with all the time money and hassle to fix all the issues; might as well go big and have a bigger boat for long term cruising. In some sense it seems more motivating since the end product will better and the challenge bigger. Then again; would hate to get one and realize a 38 would be a better fit for 1 or 2 cruisers on limited budget.

How would you compare the sizes in terms of speed, size, comfort, cost etc?
