    Searching for my 40 O'Day stolen from Sandusky Harbor Marina

    The more I read this, the more suspect I get about its truthfulness..... We own a 39' Oday and I cannot help but to wonder how you move a 18,000 lb., boat with a +40ft. mast without specialty equipment? Our keel is 30+ inches from the ground to the hull, therefore it will be at least 12 ft. off...

    What Is Your Favorite Boat Music and why?

    I have to say that I may not fit the norm on this thread, I have a playlist on amazon music unlimited that has at the moment 3 different sailing playlists. I mostly play the first one I created featuring "Sailing" by Chris Cross, "Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills, and Nash, a bunch of Hootie...

    My turnbuckle has failed........

    FH has been hauled out for winter storage...... The task has been completed, however not without a hitch. The marina calls me at work to tell me that the turnbuckle connecting the backstay has failed during the haulout, and that they recommend that I have our rig inspected and the backstay...

    Oday 34/35 shower sump

    We have an O’Day 39, with 2 heads, 1fore and 1 aft, each with showers. In the forward head, there is a wooden grate over a shallow catch basin with a hose plumbed through a cutout in this fiberglass basin/pan. This hose, which I believe to be 5/8” had a something on the end to collect the water...
