Sold mine 4 years ago

I sold mine 4 years ago. I miss it every day! I bought it in Chicago and put it on a trailer and brought it home to MN. The only complaints that I ever had was, the 10 hp motor was under powered. Also with the rudder hanging off of the transom it took a while for the boat to respond to steering after you put it in gear. This made it harder to dock. As far as sailing the boat it was a sweet experience. It was very easy to sail single handed. I'm sorry that I had to sell it before I had the chance to sail it on Lake Superior. DBS

The only ones that could beat me accross the bay were the Yatch Club racers. Go for it - I have one in Pensacola I'm selling - needs some work but it's solid $4500. They are fast and fun to sail!
Do you have a listing for the 27' you are selling in Pensacola? work needed?

thanks,

Dan,
That post was 5 years ago. Hopefully the boat sold by now.

Re: O''Day 27''

I have a new to me '77 O'day 27 that I'm sailing on Lake Superior. There are quite a few cosmetic issues I plan to address, but other than that, we're quite happy with our purchase. (bought yesterday, sailed only today).

I'm only reviving this thread in hopes of continued O'day 27 discussion. We're planning on cruising the south shore of Superior as a couple + 2y/o daughter.

non-custom bimini options? factory wiring diagrams?

We're in love with the large tall saloon and deep cockpit. Problems will arise I'm sure, but for now this O'day 27 is an impressive entry cruiser.

Adam

Re: O''Day 27''

in or outboard?


27s were unique I think. the 28 up to 40 ft are like clones getting larger and larger.

I can't believe I don't have any photos yet!

Mercury 9.9 outboard, ran great yesterday

Our configuration is galley starboard aft, with the full settee amid.

Boat came with two mains, 140(?) Genny, working Jib and Spinnaker. Thinking about replacing the Main and Genoa as they're pretty tired. I've never ordered sails, is Doyle the way to go?

Re: O''Day 27''

I have a1987 27le. I love the boat except. There is always one of them. My engine is a westerbeke 10 2. The timing case cover broke. A very big deal. It broke due to a design flaw. Back to the boat it is a great boat. For the price that I paid I have no complaints. Enjoy your boat. It's a good boat
