New to me boat

I bought boat #2, 1986 O'day 192, $2000. Has a custom 130% genoa and asymmetrical spinnaker (never used one in my one year of sailing, will be fun to try) along with the standard sails, 5hp engine, radio, stove, lots of spare parts, looks to be in excellent shape. I go pick it up next weekend.

I was looking for a boat that was more comfortable to sail, the Siren got really tiring after a couple hours, so I wanted something with a deeper cockpit, a toilet, and bunks that I can actually lay down in and sit on without my head pressed against the ceiling. I am still looking for my 3rd boat, something in the 23-27 foot range, but no hurry on that, I'll enjoy the O'day for a year at least



I am also getting a slip this year so we can enjoy sailing much more often, trailering the boat was a PITA even though we only live 4 miles from the launch. today was 89 degrees so we went down and took a look at the slip...


Yeah, not ready yet But the crane is there ready to drop the docks in the water, should start that Monday, even if they have to dodge the icebergs.

We picked it up today, apparently the owner forgot what year he bought it, because it's not an '86, it's an '89, one of the last 3 192's ever made, he bought it at the auction when O'day was liquidated for $4500 (minus sails) It's hull #488, any way to check how many were made, If I have the last one that would be sweet, but he said there were two more hulls not quite as complete as his.

Anyway, the boat is in decent shape, needs cleaning, polishing, and woodwork. But his sails are immaculate. I guess that's to be expected as he works in a sail shop. It has a barrier coat and worn ablative bottom paint over that, how should I paint it? Just recoat with fresh bottom paint? The barrier coat is good, but it has a rough texture, can I smooth that out or is that the way they are? My last boat was not coated or painted and was smooth as glass.

I'll have pics and a vid of the transfer from cradle to trailer when I get home tomorrow.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Mike,

have you seen the site

I Heart O'Days

They have some info on the 192, ie a sales brochure, but not sure what yrs, and how many. If you do indeed have on of the last three with hull #488, I am sure the owner of that site, and other O'Days would like the info, along with pics.
I Heart O'Days - Model Information - O'Day 192

Now that I am looking at that site some more, there is an owners manual available, 61 pages for $20! Neat site for O'Day owners!

Cute boat for what you want to do.

I've checked out that site, and signed up for the oday owners group on yahoo but have had no response. I'll ask on the oday site, they don't have a lot of info on the boat, but someone there may know something
