      Waiting for a closing date on a new boat is worst then waiting on good sailing weather!

      Hello John. I am Randall McCadams up in West Tennessee (McKenzie) and sail an O'day 222 but looking for a 25. That rough 25 that you mentioned in your May 19 post is it still available? I don't mind projects and want a 25 for the headroom in the galley. My 222 is only 4 feet tall and I want to be able to stand up (5'10"). Thanks for any info, location, price, etc that you might be willing to give...Randall

        It is very rough, owner had not sailed it in a very long time and had not left the dock in years. The compression post and bulkheads were roted out at the base, sails were toast and motor was rough. Also no trailer so at the price he is asking is just crazy. Also photos are old and it was pretty bad inside.

        At 5' 10 you will only have stand up with the hatch open still. I'm 5' 11" but it is better then 4' for sure.

        I'd keep looking unless you can get it for no more then $2000. My 25 is great but I'm in new sails ($1300) and motor ($1600) this year so I'm not selling unless someone really wanted it and then I have to get $5,500.

    1976 O'day 25 that we learned a lot on and enjoyed a ton! She has a new home and is being well taken care of now!
    I built a extended 13' Mini-Camper Cruiser for fishing creeks and protected water areas.

    Owner bio:
    I sailed in Maine from 1999 - 2003 on other peoples boats and learned on our first boat, I didn't really know what I was doing! Luckily the old O'Day 25 took care of us and I wised up and got lessons for myself and my daughter. That made a big difference in out confidence and knowledge and we even did our first race and managed a second place. We are moving up now and have a 2003 Catalina 310 in excellent shape and will fit our family of 4 much better for years to come.
    Engineer who has moved around a lot over the years but very glad to land in Huntsville AL to raise my kids. Planning a future of sailing warm waters with my wife, the plan is 10 years out so the C310 is our boat to see how we like it to start with.
