Boat Reviews By Owners

1974 -- 22' 0" O'DAY

Model: O'Day 22

Cockpit: This beautiful old faithful is roomy for a 22 foot boat, probably because it has a split cabin feature with teak folding doors separating the two. A toilet in the front cabin and a desk & sink in the main cabin along with a portable table. There are two berths over 6 feet long in main cabin and a two-berth in the front cabin.

Cabin: This is not just a nice place to take a nap but a great place to over-night on cruises. Sure, you would go crazy on a boat this size if you tried to live on it for more than a week but its great for long weekends.

Construction: This O'Day company has gone by the wayside like so many great builders but they have left a legacy of many great solidly built boats behind that will last for a long time. The fiberglass is way beyond today's standards. Many small features not found today as builders are cutting back on creative building and pushing skinny boats that are built of egg-shell-like materials.

Handling: Under power and under sail she is a solid performer and very forgiving. She is at home in the Great Lakes scene or on a local reservoir.

Engine Room: Any outboard of 4 H.P. up to 9.9 H.P. will make her leap through the water.

General Comments: I love this O'Day and use it mostly for a summer cottage at the marina lately because my family is grown and gone now. When I have the urge to feel the wind she is always ready to oblige me.
