Not 100 percent about the sails...the mast is on the ground next to it in good shape, looks like all new rigging, will have to replace the ropes, but for 1000 dollars I've seen worse...

Re: 82 30 O'Day

OP, your labor and time has value. By the time you get it ship shape, I would not be surprised if you had another 15-20k invested. For that money, or a little more you can find a ton of boats that all you would have to add is ice in the cooler....

Re: 82 30 O'Day

Is this the Oday 30 that is on the hard at the marina in Merritt Island? - I saw it about 6 months ago - if it is - I would walk away - the bottom of the mast wasting away - it will need to be shortened a few inches - which means all the rigging will be off - water has been sitting in for a long time - when you add up all the expenses and time to get it sailable - you are better off looking for something more ready to go - the marina its at is not cheap - if you do all the work yourself - have the time it might be OK - but just too many other boats out there in better shape for not much money.

If we're talking major structural issues, I agree.

But don't fool yourself about the amount of work involved in turnkey boats. I bought "the big boat" (for me) a year ago this August, and it was ready to roll - which was good because it was an 800nm delivery to home. No serious problems. Engine good, rigging good, sails good.

But a year later I've got a long to-do list: restitching dodger, torn hose for manual bilge pump, sand/varnish everything, prop scraping + new zincs, busted nav light lens, etc. And I purposely don't have hot water, fridge, or instruments other than depth, so none of that stuff can break!

If for $1k the boat is structurally sound and ready to sail, there's something to be said for taking everything else as more-or-less what you would have with any boat of similar complexity.

The trick is figuring out which boats just need a good scrub and which ones are big trouble....

Re: 82 30 O'Day

Nothing wrong with that boat, as production boats go.
One interior design feature to check on carefully is the head compartment. Go in, sit down, shut the door... now try to imagine using it and accessing the TP.
IIRC it was sized for a thin person under 5'5".


(We almost bought one of those boats once and the head design killed the deal.)

I know it's been awhile, I've gotten the water out of the boat, I believe it's a fixed keel there are no bolts, was feeling confident with it till i made it back towards the batteries were they sit is all rotting out I think, not sure what's underneath I've attached a few pics

Re: 82 30 O'Day

Chris, I see two keel bolts in the second picture, rusted. Don't walk, man, run!!
