1983 O'day Daysailer II

  • 16'9" Sailboat with Tee Nee Trailer
  • Mainsail, Jib
  • Swing Keel
  • Kick-up Rudder

    This is a basic, complete sailing package. The package contains everything that you need to start sailing. The hull is water-tight and solid. My son and I sailed from Vermillion to Kelly's Island last summer in 2 to 3 foot waves and the interior of the hull stayed dry during the entire trip. The main and jib sails are in very good condition, not excellent but better than good shape. The main and jib halyards are solid and in good shape, but look faded. All other standing and running rigging is solid and in excellent shape. We have had no trouble with the swing keel and it seems to be very solid. The tiller and kick-up rudder are in very good shape. There is no spidering around the mast step or the 3 stay chainplates. Gel coat is in very good shape with no spidering and only about half a dozen very small spots where I patched the gelcoat upon purchase. The trailer is very solid with only some very minor rust. The trailer lights and jack stand work great and there is one spare tire included. We have hauled this boat and trailer with our Ford Taurus Wagon (6 cylinder) and have had no trouble on the 2 hour trip to Lake Erie.

    Included with this boat will be the following equipment:

  • 36 pound thrust Minn Kota Endura trolling motor, purchased new in the winter of 2005/2006. It has really only been used a total of probably 8 hours all together as we only use it to get in and out of marinas and during no-wind situations.
  • 80 amp hour AGM battery, sealed and spillproof. Purchased at the same time as the motor and kept on a "battery minder" charger when not in use, and indoors during the winter. The battery sits in against the forward wall of the cabin and straps down to the floor so that it doesn't move when the boat heels. I installed a set of wires that run along the cabin wall, under/within the starboard seat and to the transom of the cockpit where it connects to a waterproof trailer connector. The electric motor's wire has a matching trailer connector which allows fast, tangle free connection of the electric motor. It works really slick.
  • 15 pound anchor and rope which fit nicely in the locker built into the port cockpit bench.
  • bow and stern, D-cell powered, running and anchor lights.
  • two boat bumpers and one throwable, PFD cushion.

    custom-made, heavy vinyl, cabin entrance cover that snaps across the cabin entrance. The cover zips open for access into the cabin. The cover also has a clear, vinyl window so that you can see in (or out if you are stuck in the cabin during a rain storm, or if your kids want to hang out in the cabin on a cold day).

    thank you for running the ad for my daysailer II. The boat has just been sold and I figured I should let you know so that it can be listed as sold.
