Re: Does this boat look right?

My guess is that they mounted an outboard there, figured it was better than a bracket?

That's where the rudder hangs. (My first sailboat was on O'day 19 and if I remember correctly it was right about in the middle back there.)

Re: Does this boat look right?

What an odd little duck. Do many lifting keels come up through the cabin roof and deck that way?

Re: Does this boat look right?

Thanks everyone for the really quick replies

Well we are still going to go and have a look at it and I want to speak to the owner and find out what he was intending to do with it!
I think I will have to talk my friend into walking away from it though...

Could they have been trying to modify it for racing? Its a shame to see it like this, I think it would have been a brilliant boat in its original condition.

Re: Does this boat look right?

Oh, and I forgot to mention - even though I thought these came with a pivoting centerboard, the bottom of the trunk looks like it came from the factory...
It does seem stupid for it to come up through the roof like that though, If I had the boat, I would cut the keel where it gets thicker and doesn't go down the trunk, and then put a handle or something on it and it could be raised and lowered inside the cabin....

Re: Does this boat look right?

I'm with 62.

I'm older than dirt. I have been looking at boats for a long time, looking really hard. I don't ever recall seeing an O'Day model that looked like that boat. The hull is right. The deck is odd. It's not awful, it's just not O'Day as I know them.

I'm not saying it is bad but an open transom on a boat that size and type is unusual.

Re: Does this boat look right?

This is not complicated. Launch the boat. Determine that the cockpit drains a you move around and change trim over a reasonable range. If the cockpit drains you should be fine.
I'd do this test with four people on board to be safe. Lots of s,mall p;sort boats have open transoms. Don't look at it like a transom. Look at it like a gigantic scupper.

Its a shame...I want to get my friend into sailing!
For the people with O'day 19's, this is an interesting website:
www(dot)mariner1922(dot)com
and it has all of the models so they can be identified.
This one seems to be a modified mariner 2+2 68' to 71'
I wonder if it floats

Re: Does this boat look right?

I have an O'Day Mariner 19, and given the practiacally useless <~1/2" ID skuppers, I have thought about doing some thing similar to the transom...

I might go look out of curiosity, but I wouldn't bother taking any money with me.
