O'Day Daysailor II, 17', 1973

  • Asking $1200 (negotiable)
  • Garage kept in Chandler, AZ


  • Red\orange DSII sloop.

    She is a beautiful red-orange day sailer with a cream white top. She is a swing keel sloop with a retractable (non-ballasted) fiberglass centerboard. She has a kick-up rudder and (I think) the original cocks-combed ash tiller. She has a cuddy, which is long enough for a 6' man to lay down in "relative" comfort. It works perfectly for storing the sail bag, battens, lines, bumpers, anchor, etc. during transit.

    She is a lightweight, tipping the scales just over 500 lbs, so most vehicles would not break a sweat shuttling her to the lake. She has the Tempe Town Lake permit good through December of this year. She is a bit beamy (6.5') and is very stable. She has a double pinned tabernacle, so stepping the mast is easily accomplished with one person. Her jib and main sails (likely the originals) are soft, but intact and work just fine. She won't win many races.

    She has some gelcoat spider cracks, and some good dock-rash on her hips, shows some age. A couple of repairs have been made, but were done prior to my ownership. She sits high and dry on the water, and has the original DePersia self bailer in the cockpit. She could float in a puddle... as her draft (CB up) is about 6".

  • With the CB down she takes about 4 feet.
  • Brand new halyards, sheets, and C/B control lines were added about 8 months ago (New England Sta-set poly). She also has a tune-able forestay clevis on her bow for quick adjustments when needed.
  • I also have a whisker pole... but have never used it to fly anything.
  • 10# anchor is included, as are lights for night operations.

    Her trailer is immaculate:

  • pivoting dilly trailer for shallow launch.
  • new bunk boards/carpet/SS staples
  • rebuilt hubs with new bearings/seals/bearing buddies
  • new SS hardware all around, new spring bushings
  • new swivel tongue jack/new winch/new strap
  • recently repainted
  • new hitch (2" ball) / safety chains
  • new wiring / lights all around
  • newer tires (but old spare, which holds air)

    Boat registration in hand, clear title for trailer in hand.
