paulk is on a distinguished road
Great boat. We sailed one transatlantic and then up the Irish coast to Scotland. After that we visited Man, the Scillies, Royan, and St. Jean de Luz before wintering over in Spain. Comfortable bunks (pilot berths) and plenty of stowage as well. In seas she had a nice motion and felt under control all the time. We hit a 60 knot squall (more like it hit us) and had storms with 40 knot winds and 20' seas. You may want to find a copy of "Precision Cruising" by Arthur Chace, our skipper, if Ohlson 38's are of interest to you.
