O''''Day Widgeon

We just purchased a 1974 O''Day Widgeon and are wondering about the fact that the centerboard does not seem to go all the way down. It stops about 2/3 of the way down. Is this correct? The dealer told us it is. If anyone out there has a Widgeon, perhaps you can help. Please reply to hudclark@cheshire.net. Thanks in advance for your input.

My first boat was a Sprite which was a smaller version of the Widgeon. At least on the Sprite the board went nearly vertical. It was controlled by a cable on the Srpite and sometimes the cable would hang up where it passed into the trunk.

I also just purchased a Widgeon, sail # 2422, presumably built before 1980. I too am looking for information on the proper angle for the centerboard, and also accurate instructions on how to rig the centerboard lines. Apparently mine were not correct when I purchased the boat (second or third hand). I made some adjustments, but am not certain if I have it correct, or how far forward to set the board.

Advise appreciated.

Allace,

contact Rudy Nickerson at D&R MArine in Fall River Mass (508)644-3001

Rudy was O"Day Production MGr. for as long as the company was in business and still has most parts and serive for O"Day''s. He is a wealth of knowledge on the boats....beware that it is sometimes difficult to get hold of him, as he is pretty much a 1 man operation, but WELL WORTH THE EFFORT!!!!
