O'Day Daysailer 17, 1965
1965 "DS1" fully restored solid boat. Built by the designer and original builder - O'Day Corporation, Fall River Mass., Hull # 10220, Sail #1827
One owner till three years ago when I purchased it
Boat has been dry sailed since I purchased it in 2009 and I believe for many years before. Bottom is clean and dry
New Intensity sails (main and jib) purchased in 2009 (used about 10 times ... still very crisp).
New side stays and forestay purchased in 2009 (the upgraded heavy duty ones ... better than original)
New spreaders on the mast purchase in 2011 (also the new upgraded heavy duty ones)
Wood coamings stripped and varnished (ten coats)
Wood floorboards rebuilt and varnished. Four mahogany planks replaced in 2011
New Intensity canvass tent cover (2009)
New boom crutch
Solid trailer with new tires (purchased in 2009). Trailer is not galvanized, but I sanded and repainted last summer.
Pictures provided here are a few years old, but the boat still looks the same. In fact, there have been upgrades since these pictures were taken.
Boat is in winter storage now, but available for inspection in Pittsburgh after April 28.
The boat and trailer are offered for $1,800. I also have a very reliable Mariner 2.5 hp air cooled outboard that I will sell for an additional $250, which I would recommend. Nice light motor.
The boat sold this weekend.
