Re: o'day daysailer III

Our 1st boat was a DS, drysailed on Lake Ontario, launching it with a fork lift & 3 section lift made from 1/8" lifeline with Wichard shackles connected on chain plates. Included 2 young sons and our Airedale. A fun and easy boat to sail. One knock down, on a day we should have stayed home, but managed to scramble and avoid overturn. Great choice to start out, and a whole lot more fun than bigger boats. It's like a '59 MG compared to a family truckster.
