    O'Day 25 Shoal Draft Centerboard Water Leak

    My keel has water trapped inside of it. I found that I had a missing screw on one of the plates- starboard side- that hold the centerboard axle wedges in place. The screw thread was stripped out. I removed the other screw on that side and alot of water came out. When I blow into the screw hole...

    Roller Furling Line Excess on O'day 25

    My 25 has a 9.9 on a transom bracket. My furling line is long enough to get sucked into the prop when I am setting sail and have my eyes in 10 different places while going through my mooring field. I have it led into the spool so it is just long enough to allow the jib to be unfurled but there...

    Oday 25 motor mount transom core replacement

    I had to stop everything and remove the rotted core from my transom. Once the engine was set in place and sat for a day, the bracket base sank into the transom, making an indent that was forming cracks. I thought it was going to last the summer but not. Brought the boat fall on the hard. One day...

    1976 O'day 25 Bilge Pump Installation

    The boat never had a bilge pump installed. I found a purposely made passage between the bilge and the starboard berth bulkhead for a hose but it seems restricted as I could barely snake a tape measure through it. Has anyone done a fresh install, and what is the hose OD that I should be able to...

    O'day 23- Will it point up to the wind Well?

    Considering the boat, the price is right and it has a nice roomy cabin. I was wondering if it will point up good, on a nice reach. The ability to anchor in shallow water is a plus for the type of anchoring I like to do. Is a 6hp four stroke 20" shaft sufficient for it? Thanks

    O'Day 19' Mariner Rudder Assembly

    Looking for a rudder with tiller handle for my Mariner. I built one but it's not up to snuff. I would like an original from a 19' Mariner if anyone has one. I know there are other resources but I would like responses specifically from a holder of one that wants to sell. Thanks.

    1972 Mariner Block System Behind Centerboard

    I am trying to piece together a mariner boom rig. Got the boat incomplete. The boat has a worn ratchet/dual pulley block at the foot of the centerboard for the boom. Not sure if this is a booom vang as I see boom vangs termed as diagonal block systems at the forward end of booms to masts. I...

    Mariner Centerboard

    I lowered the centerboard for the first time while under anchor and I can feel alot of play back and forth between the board and the inner trunk. I have the bolt snug to a new rubber fender washer, if I tighten it up more the washer will distort, but still there is a good gap between the...

    Best Motor for a '72 Mariner?

    The boat came with an adj. motor bracket, but no motor. I had a 6hp shart shaft that I tried on it. The bottom of the bracket plows in the water and it is slow. With a good chop the prop will catch air. The motor bogs at more than 1/2 throttle. I know I need a long shaft. I am camp cruizing with...
