Oday 22 restoration/ repair

If you have an early oday 22 there is a problem with the sidestay chainplates.

According to Rudy at D&R Marine the orignal chainplates were only 3/8" construction and subject to failure (dismasting of boat), He recommends replacing them with 5/16" constructed chainplates, which he has in stock.

Hint: if a 1/2" wrench will fit on the nuts the chain plate is 3/8" and should be replaced.

This may have been brought up before if so sorry to repeat it.

That's odd. You want to replace the thicker chainplates with smaller ones?

Further info Oday 22 chain plates:

If a 7/16" wrench fits the nuts of the chaim plates they are the 1/4" chain plates. The correct chain plates will require a 1/2" wrench.

The change is fairly easy.

You have to remove the nuts from the chain plates.
Remove the bolts from the interior bulkheads.
Ream out the holes that the chain plate bolts go thru to 5/16".
Ream out the holes in the hull that the chain plate bolts go thru to 5/16 "
Apply sealer to the chain plates before applying to hull to ensure watertight seal.
Reassemble bulkhead bolts to brackets and tighten.
Reassemble chain plates to hull thru the bulkhead brackets.
Apply the 5/16" nuts to the chain plates and tighten.
