1967 17' Oday Daysailor 1. Mainsail good condition with one set of reef points. Jib basically still brand new. Rudder and hull very good condition. Running rigging only used two seasons. I bought a new mast after the second season (the original snapped) and that new mast (and standing rigging) has not seen any use.

The boat needs a little work. It needs one spreader bar and it needs new floorboards. I have cut new mahogany thwarts and they need to be varnished and installed--a few screws. I removed the combing boards last summer and put half a dozen coats of varnish on them. The need to be reinstalled (maybe ten screws for each board). The inside of the hull could use paint, or not. It should only take a few hours to build new floorboards. A long day or a weekend with a few breaks and she's ready to go.

It's a nice little day sailer. Very capable. Good boat to learn on. Sailed her out of Wet Pants for two years then got another boat, and after that she just ddn't get used. Don't think you need a bigger boat to go cruising either. Dinghy cruising is big in England, and the possibilities of small boat camping/voyaging are endless. You can certainly cruise the bay!


The pictures are from when she was actively sailed.

The boat can be equipped with a small outboard (up to 4 hp), but does not come with a motor (I sailed her without one).

There is no trailer.

If you buy it to use locally on the Great South Bay, I can show you how to step the mast and rig the boat the first time you use/launch it.
