    Wood in the hull deck joint?

    This is my O’Day 192, on the starboard side below the aft stanchion base (behind the fuel locker). The hull deck joint is fiberglass taped all the way to that point, and then it looks like there’s wood there. The wood is wet and rotten but it’s tough to get into that spot and get a closer look...

    J Hook Terminal Ends, Z Spar?

    Hello All, I need to do some wire work on my Z Spar O’Day 192 rig but I can’t find these J Hook terminals anywhere. These are how the shrouds attach to the mast. Anyone know where I can find them? I reached out to D&R Marine since I know they sell the complete shroud (j hook and wire). I can...

    Propane outboard in cold weather question

    I’m planning on taking my boat out of the water tomorrow and have about a 30 minute motor to where I need to go (my mast is down already). I have a Tohatsu Propane SailPro with a 4lb tank (not sure what’s left in it, maybe half) and 2 1lb back up tanks (both new and full). Temperatures will be...

    Replacing hatch lexan instead of whole hatch

    My forward hatch on my 1988 O’Day 192 is leaking a bit. After watching it closely I figured out that it was the adhesive between the clear lexan panel and the hatch itself that failed. For now I sealed the inside edge with butyl tape until it’s good enough weather to actually reseal it but now...

    Outboard for an O’Day 192?

    So my 192 came with an air cooled 4cycle 5hp outboard but I’m not too psyched about it. Since it’s air cooled there’s no cowling so the engine it totally exposed and fairly low to the water. It was previously used in fresh water lake but I’ll be in a choppy salt water bay. Plus, the new version...

    1988 O’Day 192 Restoration

    I figure I should put everything I’m doing to fix up my 1988 O’Day 192 in one place so here I go. So here’s the boat when it arrived to me and some shots from before. When I got the boat I made a list of things that needed to get done and discovered more along the way. Oxidized...

    O’Day 192 Z Spars Parts

    I’m piecing my 1988 192 rig together and need to work on 3 things. The boat has a full Z Spar setup (mast and boom) and I need some parts. Anyone know where to find part diagrams or a part number list? D&R has all the Dwyer parts listed but they’re not compatible with the Z Spar setup. Rig Rite...

    Best way to fix an oxidized grey gelcoat hull?

    I finally bought a boat, a 1988 O’Day 192. Everything is in great shape except the grey hull has some oxidation on it. Any tips to get the gelcoat back to its original shine? Hopefully the boat will be delivered on Saturday so I have some time to grab supplies. Also, after researching and...

    WTB O’Day 192 Long Island, NY

    Hello All, I grew up sailing Mariners and I’m looking to get back into it with an O’Day 192. I’ve talked to countless people on Long Island who have all seen them around but I can’t find one for sale here in Long Island, NY. Transport is an issue for me so I’m looking for as local of a boat as...
