I did not realize O'Days were out of production. I guess I HAVE been out of the loop for a while
, but in this case, I guess that's a good thing as my memory of the 80's O'Day is fresh.
I'd pass if I were you. While the rigging problems might have been addressed, the overall quality of the boat will still be the same.
As far as the Dufour I was referring to, the rigging had not been modified. It was just a MUCH better boat.
Have you checked out the reviews on the Practical Sailor site? They might be helpful in your search.
