A friend of mine had an O'day 32 with a winged keel till last July,when the keel fell off on Lake Ontario in 60' of water 3 miles from shore.When the wreck was retrieved there were large holes in the hull where the keelbolts ripped out.He had been tightening them a bit each year as they seemed to be loosening up.He bought it new and took very good care of it.He was in the water for an hour before being rescued.Have a good surveyor check the fiberglass around the keel bolts before you buy.
