Re: Another Wet Ericson
Hell, I'm tempted to buy this one. And I already own an O'day 35! The (repainted) M25 looks to be in great shape, new fuel tank, and the original blue cushions (why can't anyone find this velour material?) which look GREAT make this a deal. Check the keel bolts.
Dave's school used to have an O'day 35, so he knows how it behaves.
I called on the O'Day.
The broker said it is not a cream puff, but not trashed.
It needs cushions.
Sails are "good" but might be original don't know but they are fine.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
