Re: Is 2 years and 1' worth ~$8,000?

The Oday, as has been commented on, appears overpriced. But I'll say again what I have said before - look at the boats as a collection of parts - especially the big-ticket items. 2 year difference in vintage is not a big deal, Look at:

- Overall condition
- Engine hours
- Sail wardrobe and sail age
- Standing rigging replacement date
- Age of electronics
- Any useful upgrades (e,g, chainplates replaced? Ground tackle? Windlass?)

Many of those items will set you back $000s....

Good luck!
