Any other observations you would like to make comparing the 402 to
the 38 would be appreciated.

One of the reasons that they went to a fixed table has to do with the fact that the 402 is about two feet broader than the 38. With the added beam, the space available (with a fold up table) to be tossed around in a seaway is significantly increased. That permanent table provides a means to prevent that. If you check on other sea going boats of that size you'll see that the permanent table arrangement is pretty common.
