Hobby horse

I'm thinking of going with a bigger interior then my 31 foot vindo.
Due to budget I'm thinking about C&C 38-40 (older) versions.
I have read that there rounded hull and relative light weight causes some excess hobby hoarse at speed or on the hook.

My question is - can you guys save me some research and steer me to a particular year or model that cuts down on this issue.

Unfortunately money will be the final decision maker but a bit more knowledge would help.

It's not a deal breaker for me because in most cases I can slow the boat down and make a meal etc. underway !

Re: Hobby horse

Howdy.
Your topic has had many views and no comments yet.

The topic of boats "hobby horsing" and what causes that has been discussed recently in another thread/topic on this forum. I suggest doing a search using that term and spell it multiple ways, to find those threads.
