O'day 22

O'DAY 22FT SAIL BOAT W/TRAILER

i am looking at purchasing this boat for my eventual departure from coast to cruise the east coast. I know this is a small boat, but is it too small for some ocean-ish sailing? My goal is to sail out the hudson, up to maine, and then down to florida/bahamas. I am worried about the small keep but really also love the fact that it is easily trailerable and in really good condition. It has never been in salt water.

I am a young boy with just a dog to worry about and dome from a very DIY/punk scene where sleeping on the floor is something i have become accustomed to. I am not too worried really about cramped quarters, i am worried about my safety on my proposed trip. if i have to spend more money/wait longer than so be it.


here is the info the seller gave to me about the boat and he agreed to 2k for the whole package. Sorry it is typed in such short hand, i noted it all down while on the phone:

solar charge battery. panel on front hatch, keeps the battery charged. one for lights, one for motor. minkota 36 thrust. 5 forward speeds 3 reverse.

trailer with it. same year as boat. galvanized trailer. new bearings in it, new lights, new wiring, new rollers on the trailer. The buks should be replaced on the trailer if it is bought.

3 sails, main, jib, a genoa. never used the genoa before. Great shape. jib and main are a bit tattered, one or two more seasons out of them.

rigging. needs new halyard rolls. new pulleys on haul end, rebuilt both wenches, lines are all in fair shape. halyard lines need to be replaced. standing rigging all good shape, new adjustable clevices on the ends and in good shape.

only thing that needs to be redone, the cabin cushions need to be recovered. V bunk is good covering and good shape. plywood replaced in salon on both sides last year.


really good solid boat mechanically. single handed a lot. short fixed keel. only draws 4 feet of water. 30 or 40 mph wind and it wont tip.

hull is compounded and waxed every year. brand new ideal sail rudder on it. poly flip up rudder 1000 bucks by itself.

sink, alc stove space. porta potty. bilge pump. all cabin lights work great. Toe rails need to be sanded, varnised and sealed.

all paperwork. new winch strap on the trailer.

Ryan,

I am familiar with the O'Day 22, having sailed with my brother who owned one for a number of years. I have posted some general comments about them in the past, in response to inquiries similar to yours. You should be able to find those threads using the search function.

From among those inquiries, I can't recall anyone that intended to use the boat as you do. These are more daysailers, with some limited overnighting capability, very much in camping mode. They are great for lakes, bays, and very near coastal daysailing. I would not choose nor recommend this boat for the long-term live-aboard and voyaging that you intend.

My suggestion would be to save your nickels and wait for something more capable and appropriate to the purpose.

The Bristol sounds like it's worth a look...Catalina as well....,

Wellfleet is a wonderful little town on the cape....actually worth a stop on your way north or south.!! tricky entrance...but my favorite town on CC

Ryan,
I just switched the location a few times and went to boats and search for 'sail' to see what comes up. Most of those listings are a little stale, as in old.
There are affordable boats out there in your range if you look far enough.
I did not search the ME coast which you probably should do.
Good luck.

they all look like good deals LOL Ryan I'd hate to have to pick if I was looking for my 1st boat. Have some fun and run around looking at a few different boats. I like everything about my Chrysler C-22 I was very lucky she found me.
By spring when my C-22 is in the water I will be looking for a 26'+ one on the cradle in the front yard.

I owned an ODay 22 for several years and sailed it on Barnegat Bay NJ. It was great for those shallow protected waters with it's 2 foot draft, but I would never consider it for what you propose. It's very light (bounces around like a cork in any waves) and somewhat tender. A good first boat, but you will have to move up to something more substantial for coastal cruising in unprotected waters.
