Good luck on your boat. Just set a splash date or you will be like the character from Cannery Row by Steinbeck. He works on his boat endlessly, but is terrified of the sea so keeps it in the woods. One night some people grab some sea life from the beach and put it on his hull. He moves away, afraid that his boat is taking itself out at night without his knowledge.

Not 100% sure I am getting her but I just realized she is not an O'Day 26, She's an Outlaw! Now to figure out what's the difference b/c the Outlaw is 26' ??

Wow! That's awesome! An Oday Outlaw, lucky dude!

I Heart O'Days - Model Information - Outlaw











That's a boat worth restoring!

A marine mechanic bud of mine who happens to be. The one responsible for converting me from power to sail said the '60s O Days are non~resellable items and not a big fan. Is this preference? My goal would to restore/customize her, sail her for a few years then go larger.

What's the difference b/w outlaw and 26?

Thanks BarryL who took the time to come and look her over for me this morning!!

With sailing, everything is preference! LOL It was designed after the albergs, which I think definately makes it stand out from other Odays. You can generally spot a later Oday a mile away.

Miscellaneous information
From Meridith CUTTING on 06/02/1999:

My boat was made in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and I have met the builder. He went on to form
Northern Yachts in Ajax. There are quite a number of Northerns sailing in this area. The O'Day Outlaw
was redesigned and had a fin keel added to replace the full keel and that boat became the Northern 25.
There is another O'Day Outlaw at the Oshawa Yacht Club, but I don't know its age or hull no. When the
boat was redesigned, a foot was taken off the stern and the cabin space was enlarged. The boat also
got a lot lighter, as they had found out at that time just how strong fiberglass was and they didn't have to
use as much lay-up as they were previously to get a strong boat. Boats of the age that mine is tend to
be very strong and although heavy for a 26 footer, she is very responsive and fast. The overall design is
similar to that of an Alberg 30 if you are familiar with that boat. There is a reverse transom and the
outboard sits in a well covered by a lazarette. The whole picture looks very clean. Because of the
weight and hull design (Wineglass shape) the boat is very seakind and does not pond even in the
heaviest seas. The baby sister of the outlaw was the cruising version of the O'Day Tempest.

Hi Joe,

You're very welcome. Like I said, I live about 10 minutes from there, so it was no problem to take a quick like. As you kniw, the boat appears to be solid, and everything is there. The rig looks fine, except you would have to change the spreaders. The boat has new sails, which is a major plus, and the standing rigging is in very good shape - no rust stains, no meathooks, the turnbuckles turned freely and were in good shape, etc.

The interior is a mess - note to all - don't use house paint and poor prep work to paint the interior of a boat. I think a good powerwash will make the inside look 100X better.

As long as you don't spend a lot of money making the boat seaworthy and family ready, you can't lose. With your skills, you should be on the water in after a few weeks labor.

It's probably true that O'days from the 60s are not desirable boats, but then again, not too many boats from the 60's are desirable anyway. As long as you don't put too much money into the boat you can't lose.

Barry

Thanks Barry. Scarry how we think so similarly. Still the CT Seafarer is my #1 choice but as you said, if I am smart with what I do with the O Day I cant go wrong. Still waiting on CT .....

And further more, in prepping my Thompson power boat for sale, I dropped $1100 today for a rebuilt drive, fluids, new battery and labor. Imagine how that O Day would be looking with that kind of money in her!!!

Oday Sailboat..

This all depends on how much work you want to put into it. The plus side is that you learn alot as you go, the down side is the time and money you put into it. Only you know where your limits are for that based on your other responsibilites and level or training and experience with boats. Good luck!
