Msibilsky

Does anyone know the weight of an Oday 17 Daysailor with trailer?
I am considering buying one and I want to know if I can tow it with my car?
I have found the weight of the boat itself in many places, but I cannot find the weight of a typical trailer for this boat...

Re: Msibilsky

This web page shows a 1966 Daysailor of around 580 Lbs.
O'Day Day Sailer Sailboat Sales Information and Specifications

Salboat Data . Com does not list a 17', but has data on a 15 Footer of 350lbs.
O'DAY 15 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

I would think a boat this size could be towed with just about anything.

Re: Msibilsky

I bet I could tow that with my bicycle (in granny gear). You still need to follow all towing precautions. Even a 17' O'day falling off the hitch at 65 mph could cause a few headaches.
