oday mariner traveler

I recently purchased an oday mariner, and the gentleman that I purchased the boat from had the traveler jerry rigged, with zip ties on the pulleys. Not only does it look tacky, but it seems extremely unsafe to me.

Can you please post pictures of how your traveller is rigged so that I can get the proper parts for my boat?

Thank you.

Poltergeist,

That is a great shot, but similar to the problem I have been having. Not sure my boat is actually a Mariner. It is 19' 2" as the Mariner specs say, but it says Ospray on the Transom, and is a different configuration than this boat.

My boat has a centerboard (the Mariners came with both options) and the hatchway is to the port side of the centerboard house.

I don't see why I couldn't run my traveller this way, but the gentlman who sold me the boat had sheets coming forward of the traveller, and this setup doesn't look like it would give the mainsail ample room to travel.

Hmmmm

Well, there was an O'Day OSpray, but the site below shows it at 15'8". Don't know what to tell you.

Check this out ... it may lead you elsewhere.

You betcha

Hope that leads you somewhere productive. I have great affection for your boat. I learned to sail on Lake Michigan in Rhodes 19's and a friend had a Mariner 2+2, I think it was called. Anyway, a fine boat. Hope you enjoy yours.

FWIW,

Not sure where you are but you may find a local marine consignment shop, they may just have what you need.

Near Annapolis you could try Bacon & Associates
Used Sailboat Hardware

Cheers,
