O-39

I am 99.9% sure that O'Day never built anything larger than the O'Day 40. I've never seen or heard of an O'Day 422. The 40 was redesigned by Hunt and Associates, and it had a cored hull, redesigned interior, "sugar scoop" transom and a lead keel. According to "Practical Sailor" designer Hunt sailed a 40 called "Whale and The Bird".

The "422" he is describing is not a 422, but a 40 mkII. The only difference from the standard 40 that I know of is the grey gel coat and the long lexan windows aka 322 style.

Thanks for the info. The boat I will be purchasing is a '84 39 which still has the solid glass hull , but a lead rather than iron keel. It also has three staterooms which we were looking for, the 86'+ -40 does not. I really like the layout and the deck space. The 150% jib might be a bit of a handfull around here, but there is also a 110" in the package. I can't wait to sail her!!

Wow "Morpheus" is a lovely boat! You have kept her in great shape. I'll have to keep an eye out for her next season in the San Juans!

Dan,

Around here the 155 is nice when the winds are less than 15-20, especially the calm summer days with winds if your lucky in the 5-7 knot range! I have a 1oz nylon drifter for those days. Otherwise, yes a 110 is also nice around here too. ie here being puget sound.

Sorry, I was thinking about my old boat.

If the naming convention had been consistent the boat would have been a 402, not 422.

I think they chose calling the 40 that because it really was not a new design. The only change was the color of the gel coat and the shape of the outer lexan windows.
The 302 and 322 were complete new designs with no relation to the ealier models, but the 40 mkII was a redesign of the O'day 40 hence the mkII rather than give it a new name.

I was reading the 40 brochure and it says balso cored hull with solid fiberglass at the thru hull fittings. I was told in the past that the 39s were cored. the O'day 40 hull and deck are the jeaunnaeu design minus the swim platform. Hunt only redesigned the interior as is stated in the brochure.

The more I have been reading up on this boat, the 39 & 40, the more I like it. It appears to be a very well built boat and strong. This probably has alot to do with the early Jeaunneau pedigre. I heard the earlier jeanneaus were tough boats.

And I think the 40 rates about 114 making it a pretty quick boat.

Hillster,

Here is an online review of my 85 30' Jeanneau Arcadia. There are a few incorrect items in the review, like how many were actually built, 300 vs over 600, altho if you include two other named versions with different deck and sail plans after, then it would be 701 "hulls" built.

I am sure the "build" scantlings etc part is probably the same or very similar.

As far as a 114 rating. for a 40'r, that is probably on the slower side, even back then some were approaching 80. BUT, there are some 40'rs with ratings in he 160 range, ie full bore cruisers. My boat when comparing fin keel boats in the race/cruise to fast cruiser range, A j-30 139 on one end, a Hunter or Catilina - 210 on the other, is 188 local, ave 165 thru out the US for a rating. about the middle of the pack.

Nice boat, well designed etc.

Marty
