O'day kitten

Hello,

I have been sailing my day sailer for many years and recently I was offered an o'day "kitten" at a ridiculously good price. I figure she would be good for playing around and just having fun. Does anyone have any experience with these?

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
I haven't sailed one, but googled "Oday kitten" and found a photo of one for sale. It does look like it'd be fun and easy to rig and sail. The photo doesn't show the boat with the sail and rigging attached, but it looks like a little lateen-rigged board-type boat. The asking price for the one I found was only $50., so, don't pay too much for one.

Looks like not too many were built. 1244 tween 62 and 64. Here is a link to the kitten, along with the main page having to do with anything O'Day boat wise.

thanks for the replies guys. I ended up buying her. She was 50 bucks so even if she sinks it's not a big deal. It looks like it'll be a lot of fun to poke around in. Maybe I'll race her against my daysailer!

just got one too

I just got one of these. Would appreciate any advice on how to rig it. I have 2 pulleys, one attached to the mast, one tied to a line. The line that runs across the stern is torn. Thanks,
