The logo is not identical, but could it be a Flying Tern?

Great guess, but I don't think so. Tern is shorter, different bow profile. Logo is close though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have a question, I have two sets of sails, both with the same logo, both from the same retailer. Is it customary that a sailmaker will sell sails with the logo of the manufacturer of the boat they are destined for? I mean, it seems to me that maybe the sails aren't indicative of the maker of the boat.

Too, the two mainsails have different ways of attaching to the mast and boom. One set uses an embedded rope to anchor the sails to the mast and boom and the other uses plastic attachments that ride up the slots. I guess in my mind, it's possible that neither of these sail sets is original and the logo on both sets may possibly be misleading.

Yes, it is fairly normal for a sailmaker to put the logo of the boat manufacturer or model on the sail when they're being made. The difference between the sails is pretty typical, with the bolt rope probably being the older of the two. The sail with the slugs was probably bought afterwards and the owner wanted sails that were easier to hoist.

That hooked beak had me thinking the sail logo represents a bird of prey.

At first the wingspan reminded me of the Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus) because it appears to be hovering, but another bird of prey that also hovers like that is the Osprey (Pandion haliaetus).

I did a quick search and came across a reference to an older 16' O'Day model called the "Osprey". Could only find one photo:

O'Day Osprey

Unfortunately, the photo does not seem to match, nor the sail logo.

The hook in the beak is very pronounced --artistic license, or deliberate? It reminds me of Kites, like the Snail Kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis). Another search came up with a reference to "Kite Sailboats", but no photos:

Just tossing around ideas here....

I agree about the Osprey, the mast is not located correctly. And thanks for the info about the sail logo. It meshes with what I understand the history of the boat is. My brother-in-law obtained it for free from someone who, shall we say, did not have to sweat car inspections (old European money).

Well, perhaps this will be an unsolved mystery. I googled O'Day Sailer and there was a lot of data out there, much of which seems applicable to my boat. I suppose that as long as the thing floats and I figure out how to rig and sail it, I'm GTG.

Ar ar.

Nah, we are amateur birders, so I figured we'd apply a little ornithology to the sail logo.
