Re: O'day 25 New Member

Hello Scurvy:
The o'day has been a great boat for me. The cabin is really laid out well for a pocket-cruiser, and it has two sinks-one in the galley and one in the head. Now which 25' comes with two sinks! But, as I have mentioned above in my intro, the designers didn't go out of their way to build a serious sailor here and skimped on some necessary rigging. Pay extra attention to the rudder and center board as they seem to be troublesome. Also, for any coastal sailing, I would have a knowledgeable person do the mast tuning. This is crucial as most masts on trailer-sailors are never tuned to correct tension due to the fact that they are taken down so often. However, if you are handy, this boat can be turned into a lovely cruiser that will compete with any boat (like CalebD said) in its class/size. Above all, its pretty to look at and hides her age well.
