    Thru hull

    that’s what I would do! But it’s Not my boat. Face book post. I try to steer them to this site for real help. I used to be very active here. See my albums if interested. I wonder if o’day put an engine intake even if no inboard engine? He may have an outboard on his 25. If I remember...

    Favorite Oday Picture

    It’s been a while since I logged on, and even longer since I had my o’day 26 “my girl”.I see the names have changed but the enthusiasm has not. I sold “my girl” years ago, When we decided to move a board and island packet 31 and live the cruiser lifestyle. Now that is over but I look back...

    Amp hour use

    What would be the Amp hour use For an upper right 1.1 ft.³ freezer in a boat that is rated at 79W and 1.1 amp hours. To make things worse it will be hooked to a small, let’s say efficient, converter. Question posted on a Facebook boat owners forum.

    O'Day 222-Trailering

    You're right, exactly right, the boat is placed on its keel on blocks and then the supports our carefully adjusted to keep the hall from oil canning. I've had my boat in the yard many times and carefully observe them placing my boat on blocks, a service which they charge dearly for!

    Favorite Oday Picture

    Wow! I haven't trolled these "waters" in at least a year, maybe longer! I had forgotten I started this thread and it got pinned years ago. I started my sailing journey here with an O'day 26. That was back in the days when this website was still relatively young and the idea that we can get...

    Other fresh water pressure issues

    my Atwood fully automatic pump will not shut off it it gets a little debris caught in the valve assembly. Take the bowl and strainer/sieve off and direct the business end of a water hose at the inlet of the pump and see if that gets rid of the debris. Taking the pump part as far as I can and...
