daysailer

  1. How do you find one?

    Introduce Yourself
    Ahoy! I’m a lifelong windsurfer and occasional sailer of scows, Sunfish and Lasers. Now 50 something, I’m looking for a stable, easy set-up sailboat that I can singlehand, but also can take friends—ideally a party of four. My criteria are: 1. Shallow draft (Minnesota lakes) 2. Easy set up...
  2. Easier beach retrieval?

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I launch my O'Day daysailer off the beach at the Dunedin Causeway. Getting it off the trailer is no issue, but getting it back on at low tide can be a real pain. I back in just far enough that my exhaust is out of the water. But sometimes that still leaves quite a lift to get the boat onto the...
  3. O'Day 17 ft Daysailer I centerboard help?

    O'Day
    I am currently repairing a 17ft O'Day Daysailer, and the centerboard that came with it is quite shot. and buying a new one is a bit too expensive... What would be the easiest, and most effective way to craft a new one? and maybe where a handle could be found fairly cheap?

  5. Anybody know about "Sunsail"? (The manufacturer, not the charter company)

    Boat Review and Purchase Forum
    Hi all, I recently bought (for not quite a song) a 16'-10" daysailer built in 1976 by "Sunsail." I've looked and looked, and can find no reference online for the manufacturer or the boat. It doesn't help my online searching that "Sunsail" also happens to be a mega charter outfit. Its setup...

  7. Sirocco 15 daysailer a good first "real" boat?

    Learning to Sail
    Hi all, I believe I joined this forum last summer when I purchased my Sunfish, but otherwise I'm pretty much new to the boards. My sailing experience includes several dozen hours on the Sunfish last season, maybe half a dozen between skippering and crewing on Hobies (I race), and just a few...
  8. Where to start?

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I am 17 and have only sailed a few times, at this point I would like to continue my sailing and hopefully this summer or next summer get a small daysailer. I have sailed a pixel probably three times with an instructor. I do not exactly like the place I have been sailing. I do not have any...
