It has twin poles for down wind sailing and an arch above the stern pulpit for a large solar panel and a secure base for the cockpit awning. The top life line from the stern to the gate has been replace with a stainless tube, or ‘granny’ bar. The rigid lexan windscreen and gasketed spray dodger are unique to this Rival 38.
