Thank you for the suggestion, I was able to find a copy on Amazon for less then $4.00. What I would really like to know is what sails did you run in 40 knot winds. How did you sail it or did you just heave to? Where you pointing into the 20 foot seas or running with them? So far the most we have sailed in has been 18-24 knots with one reef point and were in complete control on any point of sail, but the waves were not more than 3 feet.
Thanks

My wife and I just finished a year cruising the SVI, BVI and USVI aboard a 1979 Ohlson 38. When we bought ours I found a bunch of good information at a German fan-site: Fan Site

Maybe I will post some pictures of our year if I can dig up some time...

That is a good site. I have spent a good deal of time there. I would be interested in any pictures or insights into the boat as a result this last year of cruising. Thanks

Hi Jack, I've posted some pictures from our adventures on Picasa at the following link: Dave & Amanda's Ohlson 38 "Lorelei"

We found our Ohlson to be a very strong seaworthy vessel, great fun to sail and very wet.. which I suppose is part of the fun! She was happiest in 20+ kts of wind with a full main and genoa and never batted an eye at our common 6-8' seas.

We also rode out a couple tropical storms aboard while anchored in Culebra... and felt safe, though I suppose that is mostly a matter of ground tackle.
