In this paper, for a compact special Legendrian submanifold with smooth boundary of contact Calabi--Yau manifolds we study the deformation of it with boundary confined in an appropriately chosen contact submanifold of codimension two which we also call a scafford (Definition 2.3) by analogy with Butsher [1]. Our first result shows that it cannot be deformed, and the second claims that deformations of such a special Legendrian submanifold forms a one-dimensional smooth manifold under suitably weaker boundary confinement conditions. They may be viewed as supplements of the closed case considered by Tomassini and Vezzoni [17].
