To my eye, it does not look like an Ohlson 38. The Ohlson 38 does not have the stepped coachroof that this boat has. My guess is this is an older design, possibly from the '60s or early '70s, when stepped coachroofs were in vogue.

Doesn't it have a hull identification number?

If there is a HIN number on the upper starboard corner of the transom you can look up the coding on the BoatUS web site. The HIN will tell you the builder and the year of manufacture. Otherwise, as Caleb noted, a photo might help, eh?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

If it's a plug, then there's the possibility it has a one-off deck too. The hull does resemble the Ohlson 38. Can you get a photo of the stern/transom and skeg?

P.S. I merged the two threads that were running concurrently.

That does not look like a plug in that it has wide planking and punched web frames instead of bulkheads. Plugs rarely can be converted into actual boats since plugs lack the proper structural design to be a boat. My best guess is that this is a wooden boat that someone glassed over. Between the punched web frames and the concrete ballast, that's a pretty scary object passing as a boat!
