Re: O'day Mariner 19 C/B setup?
Cards on the table opinion? That boat scares me. The previous owner took what was a good little boat and bastardized it. He took a sawz-all to the hull? Seriously? OK, you want cockpit drainage i get it! How about a rotary drill, some marine caulk and some PVC or other plastic tubing? Then he destroyed the usefulness of the cabin by splitting it in half. Another wrong answer to a relatively simple fix.
The guy over reacted to a one time problem. The boat is no longer class legal and like i said it scares me. Especially the hole in the transom. I wouldn't buy it. The good news is there are plenty of unmolested versions of this great boat available.
