    New O’Day 20 owner with no sailing experience and a project boat I didn’t need

    So it’s been many months. I haven’t had a whole lot of time to dedicate to the boat with a new job but I wanted to at least post some progress. The cabin is very cramped and the more I spend time inside the boat, the less and less I am enjoying it. I think something with a stand up cabin would...

    I’m on the East Coast in Brick NJ, but thank you. The weather is getting nicer. Yesterday 63, today 53, tomorrow 70°. If I get work done earlier enough tomorrow I want to power wash the hull and get scrubbing. This weekend I’ll attempt to get the outboard started as well.

    Thank you everyone for the advice. It means a lot. Tomorrow it is supposed to be in the mid 50's after a few weeks of 20's and 30's here in NJ with snow and ice. I don't like to move plastic around in the freezing weather. I'll take advantage of the temps and straighten out that furler track and...

    So the tarp blew off the other day and it was the perfect opportunity to check for a furler. Lo and behold, it’s got a furler! Woohoo!

    Yes, now I know what you are referring to. I don’t think that’s what it is but I’ll try to sneak a peak under the tarp tomorrow. I don’t recall the lower round unit on the boat or rigging.

    I don’t know what a furled foil is but I’ll take your advice and straighten it out. It looks like it’s slotted for a sail? Thanks for the CB explanation and parts recommendation. I’m going to write down Rudy’s / D&R’s number inside the folder I made for this so I have it in a safe place.

    YiskNie2013 - I am looking forward to your progress. I just picked up a 1977 "20" and it looks to be in similar condition.

    Thank you. Cleaning it up isn't an issue for me. I have detailing experience with a fully stocked detailing shelf in the garage. As soon as the weather starts to break, it will get done. Thank you. I don't even know how the keel raises or lowers yet. LOL. The rudder and tiller are in good...

    Thank you. I have a high school friend who grew up sailing who already offered.

    Hello everyone. I recently picked up a free 20 off a guy on Craigslist. I dont know what made me want to save the boat but I’m glad I did. Now I have this thing sitting in my backyard and I am a little overwhelmed on where I should start (besides a deep cleaning). The boat needs work. It...
