Re: They should part out this one

No issue with delamination of bulkheads on my 30 O'Day. Looks beautiful throughout. Some soft spots on deck adjacent to shrouds but chain plates fine.

Re: Replace Wheel with Tiller? Can it be done?

Why do you want a tiller? My O'Day 30 came with a tiller and the first owner replaced it with Edson wheel steering. The tiller hardware still protrudes from the stern cockpit helm surface. Curious?

Re: O'Day 30 Swing Keel Rigging

I added a block and rigged so as to have a 2:1 advantage and it works fine now. Had boat hauled and bottom cleaned last year and there was no sign of obstruction.

Re: Stern Ladder for O'Day 30

I probably could add an extension but my experience with those things is that they swing in when stepping on them and that would put it into the rudder.

Wisconsin? Brrrrr.... we leave our boats...
