    SAFE HARBOR MARINAS

    They bought out Jefferson Beach Marina on Lake St Clair. Kept the staff which is good but we’ve been hit with significant increases for dockage/storage.

    AUTO PILOT PREFERENCES

    eherlihy provided good pics. On my 322 the sensor core/compass and actuator are mounted in the port lazerette up high so the wires don’t get caught up with fenders, hose, etc. this location made running wires to drive motor, head unit, and power relatively easy. Hardest part was making the...

    New owner 322

    My 4th season aboard my 322. It sails well and I like the layout. I’d change a few things, such as the shut-off and the lack of water strainer - still on the to-do list - but it’s a keeper. I have updated electronics and added an auto helm.

    AUTO PILOT PREFERENCES

    I have an EV100 wheel drive for my 322 Oday (10,250 lbs) and it works very well In a variety of conditions.

    Deck organizer/turning blocks on 322

    Looking to run lines for my Cunningham and out haul back to the cockpit. I have this current two block deck organizer on the port side, would like to make it a four block like on the starboard side. Ideally, I’d use the same manufacture but can’t see who this is. Anyone know the name?

    Oday 322 genoa track blocks

    As sailboat parts go, they weren't too bad - I don't have the invoice in front of me but I think it was about $35-50 each.

    Oday 322 genoa track blocks

    New genoa cars have arrived! Ball bearings, larger diameter block and overall better construction. Heading over to the boat today to make sure they fit the track. They should work much better. I'll post pics.

    D&R Marine comes through again. Blocks are on their way. It pays to talk with Rudy directly.

    Oday 322 genoa track blocks

    Contacted Garhauer, they referred me to D&RMarine. Unfortunate looks like they don't carry them in their catalogue. I'll try calling tomorrow.

    Starter Switch

    I have an O'day 322. The 2gm20f starts and runs great (knocks on wood). The only problem is that the key cylinder is worn out such that I have to jiggle it sometimes to get it to turn. Once it is turned, I push the starter button and everything is great. I am looking to buy a new starter switch...

    Bimini Hater Alert

    Tried this out on our boat, didn't work out. Made a boom tent with a tarp until our new bimini is installed.
