The T38 ie2 was very much on my short list until I actually saw one in the flesh.
It is much narrower internally than the SD360 but the biggest factor is the internal sloping deck. I wanted a flat deck because of Isla, my dog. I spent a fortune on my last dog with torn cruciates.
When I actually tried a T38 I was really impressed with the performance, which is better than the SD360, handles better and it's quicker. However, I didn't think it's was as stable as the SD360 and I didn't like the water thats at the bottom of the deck most of the time.
So as I said, the SD360 is a comprimise for me, useability over a slightly better performance.
It's each to there own. Like most I have one boat (and a kayak) so it has to do a multitude of things and compromise on them all. On the other hand you have, is it 12?? boats, one for every occasion, so the word compromise should never be in your vocabulary.
