1978 O’day 25 foot sailboat walkthrough while underway in the Indian River, Central Florida.
Greeat video, i just subscribed to your channel. i had a very simular set up as you have. The autopilot is such a big help, just remember to keep your stern anchor away from it, The metal anchor effects the compass in the autopilot. i just posted a vid showing how i set up a storm jib and 160% jib as a schooner rig for light air. I loved my O’Day so much, i still mis her alot. its a great extended weekend boat, she also handles great, the only small issue i had was not being able to get close to the wind with only a genoa foresail.
Thank you for posting, im looking forward to more of your vids, happy sailing.
thanks for the video, very nice boat
Thank you, this video was great! We are looking at a1977 tomorrow to take out this season.
I have a 76 Oday 22MH and I am kinda looking at your boat in regret. haha. Looks awesome
Great little cruiser thanks for the tour!
I have this boat, a 1983, with a Yanmar inboard diesel. my first boat w/a cabin/head, etc. (sailing since i”m a chid). stupid question–our electric all of a sudden stopped working (cabin lights won’t go on-). any suggestions? are there fuses? 🙂 thx

That wiring in the lazarette is SCARY!.
Great video! I’m going to look at an O’Day 25 tomorrow and this was super helpful to see the layout!
Great vid! I am an experienced sailor looking to buy a 25 ft O Day please let me know if you have any advice thanks!!
i want to buy a small sailing boat and haven:’t decided among oday or bristol but your boat looks great.
nice boat bud..
how muchos cost a boat like that
I LIK IT TOO !
Someone in my city (Cape Coral) is selling an oday 23 it didn’t have an engine or trailer and I’m going to go take a look at it asap he only wants 500
Would you feel safe sailing this up the coast and up through the Bahamas.
I have 25 foot westerly tiger. much the same thing. perfect size for weekend use. sail mine in lake superior. have the same auto tiller which is a must. I manage about 600 miles a year in mine.
Just bought a 1983 O’Day 25. Your video is very helpful! Thank you for posting!
Thanks for your video very informing.. l saw a 25′ O’Day on ebay that sold for $203.. after watching your video l would of considered buying a O’Day.. Have you ever saw one with a Volvo sail drive?
i had the same boat and i loved it. lol, i remember every inch of it! the 2.5 draft was really nice when finding a spot to anchor. i learned so much from that boat. it was big enough to play in small craft but responded fairly fast to gusts. i remember surfing in the 25 O’day in 4 to 6 foot swells,lol.
now i have a 36 Catalina and i wish i sailed her more than i do.
Nice galley table and drawer! Did you make it from a plan?
What type of galley pump did you use?
I have a ’77 and have thought about putting my 6000 BTU AC in a horizontally split 2 piece (above and below) frame into the companionway, to allow step-over, using an inserted third piece to stabilize the top of the unit and support weight.
Great video! Love my 25 as well. Would you happen to have the dimensions for the air conditioner mount? Won’t be back to my boat in a few weeks and I am looking to add air as well so was hoping I could cut the pattern at home and take it with me.
