Ahhhh, you know what, that's exactly what it is. They would be perfect then :/

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

On my Oday 30 the headsail sheets do not rub on the safety line. They are slightly above. Not sure what sort of headsail my boat has...someone asked one time and I told them it was triangular. ha... guess I need to read about this.

The traveler for the main sheet is just in front of the companionway. I have become experienced with holding the wheel and trimming the mainsheet. An autopilot would really be nice.

I like Denise's idea with the cam lock.

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

Interesting discussion. I am looking at an O28 that comes complete with autohelm BUT it also has a nice dodger. Seeing this reminds me to check on how that will all work together in a single-hand situation which I anticipate will happen from time to time...

Great boats. My Father owns one and he loves it. Good luck with it.

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

My wife of 9 years just bought 'us' an O28 as an anniversary gift. Its been on the hard for the past year. Wood needs some love and she needs a buffing (the boat, not the wife), but it is huge compared to the Cape Dory 25 we have been sailing. I look forward to learning, as you are.

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

I will be keeping an eye on this and any other thread that makes any mention of 28' ODay.
I too just bought one. Just last week. My first sail boat! I will be like a sponge trying to soak any information I can on this boat.
Boy, do I have questions.
Too afraid or too ignorant to even ask those questions fearing I will only embarrass myself with my choice of sailing lingo. I am still trying to figure out why there are no mention of "ropes" on sail boats! See what I mean? LOL

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

Welcome aboard! I'm sure that you'll find lots of good info on the '28 plus general O'Day info that will also be applicable to the '28. We're a pretty easy going group so don't worry about getting flamed for lack of knowledge.

There's a rather cute poem concerning the difference between ropes and lines, but I can't remember it now. The short answer is that rope on a boat has no purpose, once put to use it's called a line, a rode, a sheet, etc. Correct terminology is important to insure accurate communication onboard, not so important during that leisurely sail, however when that big blow comes up, loosening the wrong line can be a problem.

Re: Just bought ODay 28, a couple of questions

Welcome to SailNet AERCEN.

The only dumb question is the one that you don't ask. Ignorance can be cured; stupidity cannot.

The only rope on a sailboat is the "Bolt Rope" all other cordage is referred to as "lines."

You may also want to check out SailboatOwners.Com, as they also have a forum specifically geared to O'days.

I have an O'day 35. My first boat too...
