      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

O'Day 27 worth considering?

It's not horrid looking would fill the bill for what I need in a boat for the next couple of years.



Looking at the numbers it seems like it should perform okay too

SA/D: 20.01

D/L: 170.62

Ballast/Disp: 50.02

Sure, why not?  Alan Gurney was no slouch.

Other than a random, out of the blue request, one presumes you have a particular boat in mind.  Much more important than the design is the condition of THAT boat, and what the previous owners did to it (good and bad).  Considering they stopped making them 40 years ago, you really need to check it over - or better, have a Surveyor check it over.  Good luck!

It's under $1K, needs to be moved ASAP, needs some glass work that I'm comfortable with doing. Has usable sails.

It's just that other than my old Mariner I've never really looked at O'Days that much. Guess I just wanted to make sure that they weren't all gonna laugh at me on the water.

Thanks. Looks like she's carrying a good press of sail for the conditions.

I took a pass on the one that needed work. A little research found that there were several others locally in good condition for short money.

In the past I wouldn't even have considered this boat but I think I've changed my mind on that.
