Hi, This a long-shot, but do you know if the owner still has his O'day 26? If so, do you have his phone number??
Thanks,

nogin Well I have a huge second driveway for my boat with an enclosure but that's not the issue. My Thompson is in that space now and just found out today she needs the engine to come out for some major repairs before I can sell it. That leaves me with no space to put the sailboat. The owner originally agreed I can do work at his house but now changed his mind. I guess it wasn't meant to be! At least I still have my Rinker 270 to play with until I find a good sailboat that makes sense.

Well it turns out you have nothing to be jealous of. The owner changed his mind and wouln't let me work on it in his yard as originally agreed. It's not worth the extra few hundred plus to bring it to a yard and work on it.

nogin Thanks guys! I am very excited to dive in but I am afraid I was just dealt some bad news regarding my Thompson. Turns out the previous mechanic who will remain anonymous (PM me if you are in the PJ - Mt.Sinai area to stay clear of this guy!!) who rebuilt my Port Drive last year did not put the Gimbal Housing in correctly so water and sand got into the block stripping the flywheel. Now the engine has to come out and a new flywheel installed. Thankfully my new mechanic who is super reliable and an awesome guy all around, waived his hourly charge for the 2 hours he spent on it today. More money into the Thompson taking away from the O Day until she sells. So glad I am moving over to sail boating!!

Splash date set ~ May 16th (my sons 9th B Day and this boat is going to be his gift!!!) That gives me 3 weeks. My goal is to dedicate a good 4 hours a day everyday to her to get-er done. Unrealistic, perhaps????


I will be starting a new thread for her rebuild soon with pictures and descriptions for all to follow.


Congrats and good luck!
I think boats are kind of like rescued pets. When you bring them back from disaster, they treat you better.
As you bring her back to former beauty, you can rest easy knowing repairs are done right.

LandLocked66c Awesome! If you ever sell her, let me know! Not sure why i'm fascinated with this boat, I just am...

Look forward to the build!
