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.

Thanks for the information. This is our first season with the boat, so far I have found it to be an excellent sailor (much more capable then myself). When I am not sailing it I am trying to find out as much about it as possible.

Those boats were also built by Ericson as I recall. You may want to find the ericson site/forum, and info may also be on the site too.

Different 'Olson'. Ericson build the final round of 911s's, designated 911se (designed by Carl Schumacher, not George Olson) after Pacific Boatworks went under. The Ohlson 38 is here:

In other words, the old smith vs smyth spelling of smith. or add an 'E" in the son/sen part of olson/olsen and get different spellings of the same word too........I knew that ericson built an "olson" as one of the people that post on here has one, and is a moderator on that board. I was thinking a bigger version.
So OP, do not look at ericson board!

I have the issue and could send you a photocopy of the article. There is another excellent write up in "Choice Yacht Designs" by Richard Henderson published by International Marine Publishing in 1979. This book is out of print but there are usually used copies floating around Ebay or Amazon.
My brother is currently rebuilding an Ohlson 38. Nice boat.

Thanks, I was able to get a copy. I will also look for a copy of the book. To clarify the boat was built in England by Tyler Boat Works and finished in Sweden. One Day I hope to sail it back.
