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.
