And that's what this book is all about. It's also your invitation to join us on our adventure. We think that somewhere on the following pages is the boat you'll sail for years with love and pride.
Introduces features of eleven O'Day designs. The facts are all here. You'll discover everything about these boats except the sheer fun and excitement of sailing them. This section covers Design, Construction, Standard Equipment, "Go-Faster" Extras, Safety Features, Popularity, Fleets, and Your O'Day Dealer.
Combine the unique PopTop cabin design of O'Day's new flagship with proven race-winning performance, and you have the most exciting break-through boat since the inception of fiberglass sailboat construction.
Yngling (pronounced ing-ling) means youthful in Norway, where her design originated. Her lines reflect youth, speed and agility, and so does her performance.
If you want to cruise, but don't want to be the last one home on Sunday night, then Manner is the answer. After a few years of sailing the Rhodes 19 ourselves, we decided to use that proven hull design as the basis for a comfortable cruising boat that could go places and race.
Picture yourself sailing to the windward mark with a racing crew of 2 or 3; or leisurely daysailing to a picnic spot with 4 adults and several children: Now you can visualize the flexibility of the Rhodes 19.
The most popular sailboat in the country for the past ten years has been made even better for 1971. Several important safety features have been added, making the new Day Sailer an even better boat than she was before, without changing her weight or performance a bit.
The broad hull and deck of the O'Day 15 form an almost solid, airtight unit of great stability and maximum buoyancy. In the event of a capsize, the hull floats so high as to almost always prevent water from entering the cockpit.
Sailing for the entire family demands room in the cockpit, stowage and safety plus an easily handled rig. Javelin has all of this and more. She's a center-boarder that can be sailed right up to the beach, and easily trailered and launched by two people.
Widgeon's good sailing characteristics and excellent stability have made her a favorite of yacht clubs for their junior sailing and frostbite programs. She's the smallest sailboat that's really practical for adults, and is easily handled by youngsters.
As the 1972 Olympics at Kiel draw closer, interest in the International Tempest is sure to increase. O'Day has built more I.T.'s — and won more races — than any other North American builder. O'Day is sanctioned by Lloyd's of London as an approved builder.
The fun and thrills of sailing are available everywhere you go when you carry one of O'Day's sailboards on your car top or in your wagon. Lightweight, easy to load and launch, Swift and Super Swift combine all of the excitement of sailing with easy portability.
