Typical O'DAY boat, LOADS of FUN!
Only big problem I have is how to paint the C/B while boat
is on trailer. Very roomy cockpit, stable under sail and at rest.The Day Sailer II is advertised as having a self-bailing cockpit, but it really only works when the boat is moving. At rest a small amount (1 gallon or less) backflows into the cockpit, this remains in a sort-of gutter that surrounds the cockpit footwell. I have no problem singlehanding my DS II, although the jibsheet leads were not set-up ideally for this. If you are interested in a Day Sailer, by all means contact the Day Sailer Association, and when you buy a DS, join the association it is a great source for information.
