Re: 19 foot Oday for crusing

@m2736185, where you located at? I am selling my Oday 22 which I would not hesitate to take out into the gulf for a week cruise to the barrier islands along the gulf coast. I have had her out in 20-25kt winds more then once already, single handed and just fine running on a main sail alone or just a 110. I have sailed a Macgregor 21 along the gulf coast before too, really fast boat and although it was ok, my Oday is way more solid. So I recommend get an Oday 22 if you can instead or better yet, a Cal 25. Some of the Cal 25's can be had for cheap and those are some really solid boats. None of these are full keeled boats though but I don't think you can get a full keel for 2K. If you do live around here and interested in my Oday, let me know because I can get close to that price. You can see pics on my profile.

Re: 19 foot Oday for crusing

A daysailor, like the Oday, is designed to be bailed if water comes aboard. Cruisers, no matter how small, are designed to shed water that comes aboard; that is why the cockpit sole is above the waterline, so the water will flow out the scuppers. The Oday is fine for day sailing, when you can choose the conditions, not for cruising,when you have to adapt to what comes.

Re: 19 foot Oday for crusing

I'm located in jacksonville, fl.

I found a tanzer 22 in southern fl for 1500. But it would proly cost the same price to have it transported to me. I think I might just go on the lookout for a cat 22 with trailer. Seems like it could handle some coastline sailing
