19 foot sailboat located in Littleton, Colorado (Denver area)
This boat sails super well.
Very balanced helm that stay on course hands free with properly trimmed sails.
Tacks well and is such a joy to sail, even for a novice!
It is also very easy to launch and recover thanks to the retractable tongue.

The boat was owned for one year by the original purchaser, then for 21 years by the next gentleman in Wyoming who we purchased it from (his estate actually), and it was evident that the boat was his baby. We have owned the boat for three years and sailed it for about 2-3 weeks each Summer. Other than those 2-3 weeks it was always stored in our garage.
We love sailing, but our kids don't even like to sail a little bit. We are switching to a camper for our last few years with the kids still in the house.
Not enough room in the garage to keep both a camper and a sailboat, so we regrettably must sell the boat. In five years we will be looking for another boat, and an Oday 192 will be high on my list!
