Re: New to sailing
Great boat! When my wife and I were first married, we had an old Sailstar Explorer (very similar to the O'Day) on Narragansett Bay. Dollar for dollar, probably the most fun we've had in a boat.
If you plan to trailer the boat, make sure the mast is hinged above the deck to facilitate stepping the mast. Otherwise, it is quite a chore. (Of course, you can always have a yard cut the mast and add a hinge. That's what we did.)
I second the idea of getting someone experienced to look the boat over for you.
