    1974. O’Day 20 Interior Refurbish

    I hope to take the bulkhead apart over Christmas. I will report back what the original looked like.

    1974. O’Day 20 Interior Refurbish

    Noodat Lady. Others are far more knowledgeable than me, but from what I have read, a post of some kind would be a good idea. Something has to support the mast, and people walking over the cabin.
