Re: Advice on O'Day 22

We owned one back in the 70's-80's. Very simple boat, yet a forgiving design. Since we had previously owned a swing keel boat, we felt the O'Day was much more stable and sailed better.

I agree with a previously poster that the interior plywood work would need a keen (and experienced) eye to evaluate. If that holds up, then I think the O'Day would be worthy of your attention.

The trailerability was a definite plus since it was not a big deal to rig the boat as we travelled to many inland lakes.

$1700 is a decent price, especially with a trailer, if the wood issue checks out.

YMMV
