    Newly purchased an 86 Ocean Yachts 38SS and in hopes to find info to help familiarize myself with her with the assistance of a manual. Does anyone have an info on this boat or a copy they can share. I contacted both Egg Harbor and Viking and all info of that sort is not available. Any help is greatly appreciated

    Amanda - I was lucky enough to have another forum member share his extra manual with me. I have a 1987 38ss. Not sure what has changed but i'm sure its similar. I'll be glad to share the manual. if you email me at Email Removed I can scan it and forward it to your email.

    Hello. I am hopefully purchasing a 1987 Ocean Yachts 38 SS. The survey revealed moisture in the deck core. Before I move ahead I am trying to determine whether the deck core is balsa or something else. I would appreciate it if I could get the manual to see if it states what the core is made of. I read some where that Ocean Yachts started using divinycell in the mid 1980s. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I did buy the 87 OY 38 and would like to see your owner's manual if it's not too much trouble. Mine came with a Norpro generator--if you have anything on that I'm interested in that too. Thanks!

    Sure thing. I don't have that genny Westerbeke in mine. But have original manual in a binder. I could copy all and send snail mail or scan for electronic copy. Teaching classes today and moving this weekend. In a hurry? Or I can do it this weekend sometime.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I am in no rush. Whatever is easiest for you.
    I'm happy to pay any cost involved.
    Let me figure out a way to get you my contact information without posting it on the web.

    My email is REMOVED--if you get in touch with me there, that may be the best bet.

    Hello! Would anyone in this threat still happen to have the user manual by any chance? Recently purchased and had the 38' serviced/repaired. A user manual would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Hi there, haven't gotten an email or reply.

    In the meantime, would anyone else happen to have the user manual by any chance?
