Anyone with opinions on the O''''Day 322 ?

Having decided that a 30-32 foot boat would best fit my needs, I''m now looking for input on various models.

My plan at this point is basically coastal sailing, with short offshore hops in a good weather window (I''ll be retired, and have no time worries, so can wait out weather). Also, I''ll be singlehanding.

Any suggestions of boats would be appreciated. My main concerns are mast height under 51'' and a shoal draft.

Fair winds,
John

Almost forgot.....I''ll be living aboard.

John -

I owned an O''Day 322 for three years. Sailed her from Newport RI to Miami FL and various areas in between. I really enjoyed the boat. Well thought out, sailed well etc. Loved the winged keel! As far as living aboard - storage was lacking as with any 30 - 32 footer and the beam made moving around the salon table difficult. I was in Miami and air conditioning is mandatory - very little room to install one. I did see one added by eliminating the trash bin. I wound up buying a bigger boat...

I really think you will like the boat - the question is the size and how much "live aboard" you will really be doing.

Fair Winds,

Russ

Full time living aboard ! I''m looking at that size as I feel that is as big as I want to go for singlehanding. Intial cost and continuing costs are also a prime factor. Also docking fees and other associated size related costs.

Thanks for the input.
