O’Day 22

A nice cockpit, a touch of privacy and good looks, but performance is not a strong suit here..

O’Day Boats was around a long time by fiberglass boatbuilding standards—about 30 years. Originally O’Day was a leader in small boats typified by the Fox-designed Day Sailer.

O’Day 22

By the early ’70s O’Day had moved into the trailerable cruising boat market. In the meantime the firm was acquired by Bangor Punta along with such other major boat builders as Cal and Ranger Yachts. In later years, with the decline in volume sales of small boats, O’Day had problems. To help alleviate these, O’Day produced larger and larger boats, first a 30, then a 32, and more recently a 34 and a 37.

All the cruising size boats in the O’Day line were designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates in one of the most enduring designer-builder relationships in the industry (rivaled, in fact, only by Bill Lapworth’s tenure as Cal’s house designer and Bruce King’s with Ericson Yachts). The result of the relationship is a family resemblance in the O’Day line that is more than superficial. What proves popular in one boat is apt to be adopted in subsequent kin. Therefore, any study of the O’Day offerings over the years reflects a process of evolution.

When it was introduced, the O’Day 22 was touted as a competitive contender on the race course, a contrasting companion to the rather hazy 23-footer which it would soon phase out. The 22 had a masthead rig, a stylish rake to the transom, shallow (23″) draft with a short stub keel and no centerboard, light weight (advertised 1,800 lbs) for trailering, and a price under $3,000.

Later, the 22 acquired a fractional rig, a centerboard, 300 advertised pounds and a price tag almost $7,000 higher.

Construction

O’Day once set a standard for small boat construction and styling. That was before on and off labor problems in its plant, management changes under Bangor Punta, the decline in sales of boats in its size range, and increasingly fierce competition for buyers who became more cost than quality conscious. The later O’Day 22s were, frankly, a mixed bag of quality and shabbiness.

The spars, rigging, and hardware are as high quality as we have seen in comparable boats. Our only reservation is with the stamped stainless steel hinged mast step that we know from personal experience requires a steady hand and boat when raising or lowering a mast.

We also think that a mainsheet which terminates in a cam action cleat 16″ up the single backstay may be economical and simple but it is neither efficient nor handy, again a reflection of scrimping to keep price low.

The quality of O’Day fiberglass laminates was historically high but there have been reader reports of gelcoat voids and there is consistent evidence of print through (pattern of laminate in gelcoat). Exterior styling and proportions are superb, an opinion iterated by owners who have returned the PS Boat Owners’ Questionnaires. The O’Day 22, despite her age, is still not outdated.

On a boat of this size and price, a minimum of exterior trim is understandable. What is less understandable is the poor quality of the interior finish and decor. Belowdecks the O’Day 22 epitomizes the pejorative label Clorox bottle , used to describe fiberglass boats. Sloppily fitted bits of teak trim are matched against teak-printed Formica, at best a tacky combination. Cabinetry, such as there is, is flimsy, and in general the whole impression is of lackluster attention to details.

Performance

Without a centerboard the O’Day 22 simply did not have the performance to go with her racy image. Even with the centerboard she is hardly a ball of fire under sail. She does not point well; tacking through 100 degrees is not uncommon and she is tender, with a disconcerting desire to round up when a puff hits. In light air, with her 3/4 fore triangle and working jib she is under-canvassed and sluggish. In such conditions a genoa with substantial overlap is essential.

Since changing jibs is at best a dicey exercise on a 22 footer, the first step in reducing sail is to reef the mainsail. Jiffy reefing is standard and owners of the O’Day should have a system in good working order and know how to use it. Owners of the boat in waters where squalls are a threat may also want to consider roller furling for the larger jib, trading off the loss of performance and added cost for such a rig for the convenience and, in the case of this boat, the safety.

The O’Day is most hurt in light air downwind and most owners will want either an 8′-or-so whisker pole for winging the jib, or a spinnaker. It is a fun boat on which to learn spinnaker handling. With her fractional rig the spinnaker is relatively small and yet the boat is big enough to provide a foredeck platform for setting the sail.

O’Day 22

The trouble is that the O’Day 22 scrimps on the hardware needed for ease of handling with or without a spinnaker. The two #10 Barient sheet winches are, in our opinion, inadequate for anything larger than a working jib and we suggest replacing them with optional #16s. Similarly, the working jib sheets lead to fixed blocks whereas lengths of track with adjustable blocks (fitted to some boats as an option) are far better for optimizing sail trim.

The O’Day did not come with halyard winches as standard. It is a large boat for setting and reefing sails with hand tension alone. Most owners will want at least one small winch (#10) on the cabin roof, with the jib and main halyards led aft through jam cleats or stoppers to the winch.

The fairing of the O’Day 22 underwater is better than average, helped by the fact that the lead ballast is encapsulated in the fiberglass hull molding. The centerboard will, however, be difficult to maintain.

Like many other boats of her size on the market, the O’Day 22 is basically a daysailer with incidental overnight accommodations, notwithstanding that her builder (or its ad agency) made much of its questionable comfort, privacy, and space.

The cockpit of the O’Day is almost perfect: a spacious 6-1/2′ long, the seats are spaced to allow bracing of feet on the one opposite, and the coaming provides a feeling of security and serves as a comfortable arm rest. It is also self-bailing although the low sill at the companionway means that the lower hatch board must be in place to prevent water going below in the event of a knockdown.

Seat locker space is excellent for a boat of this size with quarterberth below and we like the separate sealed well for the outboard remote gas tank (but not the fact that the hose can be pinched in use).

O’Day literature boasts berths for two couples in “absolute privacy.” Privacy in a 22 footer has to be one of the more relative features. A sliding door encloses the forward cabin and another, the head.

The layout of the O’Day 22 is a noteworthy example of the tradeoff between an enclosed head and berth space. It does indeed have a head area that can be enclosed, a rare feature indeed on a boat of this size. With a conventional marine toilet and throughhull discharge where permitted, this would be a most serviceable facility.

The tradeoff is a pair of terrible vee berths forward. Coming to a point at the forward end, there is simply not enough room for two adults on even the most intimate terms. They are thus suitable only for a pair of small children who do not suffer from sibling rivalry.

By contrast the two settee berths in the main cabin are a bit narrow but a fit place for two adults to sleep. In contrast to the dinette layout of other boats, we think the more traditional layout of the O’Day would be the choice for most owners, especially those cruising with children. However, the settees are not comfortable to sit on, lacking as they do backrests.

The initial version of the O’Day had the then fashionable dinette arrangement but this was quickly replaced by a pair of opposing settees. We doubt if many owners would bother setting up the portable cabin table between the berths, as it prevents the fore and aft passage through the cabin.

The galley with its small sink and space for a twoburner stove is rudimentary but adequate for a boat of this size, Inadequate is the bin/hanging locker opposite the head. Its usefulness escapes us. Enclosed, it could have been better used space. But then the O’Day 22 desperately needs stowage space.

Conclusions

At a minimum trailering weight of 2,200 lbs. (more realistically 2,500 plus the trailer), the O’Day 22 is above the maximum for trailering without a heavy car and special gear.

If she isn’t going to be trailered and launched off a ramp, the 2′ minimum draft is an unwarranted sacrifice of performance and stability. We would look for a fin keel boat unless shoal draft is the highest priority.

On the other hand, with some additional sails and hardware the O’Day 22 should appeal to the sailor who wants a minimum size (and therefore price) boat primarily for daysailing and occasional weekend cruising (maximum one couple plus two young children).

Clearly the O’Day 22 is a minimum boat built tightly to a price. She is attractively styled. As she is apt to be a first boat, resale is important. O’Day boats have enjoyed good value on the used boat market. For about $6,000 for a ten-year-old model, you get a sleek looking small boat with a good cockpit, a modicum of privacy and two good berths. You also get a schlocky decor and a slow boat.

O'Day 22 MH

O'Day 22 MH is a 22 ′ 0 ″ / 6.7 m monohull sailboat designed by Raymond Hunt (C.R. Hunt & Assoc.) and built by O'Day Corp. between 1973 and 1980.

Drawing of O'Day 22 MH

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Dimensions for masthead rig.(1973-1980) Available with keel/cb and fixed keel. See O’DAY 22 for more details. Taller masthead rig: I(IG): 27.30’ / 8.32m J: 9.00’ / 2.74m P: 24.50’ / 7.47m E: 8.40’ / 2.56m

1976 O'day 22

  • Add to quote

I'm new to this forum business, but here goes: I'm thinking of buying a '76 O'day 22. I know some have movable keelboards and some "built into the hull solid non-movable keels. (This one has a built in or all part of the hull) What is the advantages and disadvantages of these designs? Thanks  

With the swing keel you can raise keel up to make it easy to get on to a trailer or to get close to shore. It is usually lighter than a fixed keel and has extra maintenance points at the pivot and at the winching device. Swing keels may require some type of housing in the interior of the boat that will take up some space. The slot that the keel fits into also has to be kept clear of gunk and growth. Usually the rudder will also have a type of pivot arrangement so it can be at the same depth as the keel. The fixed keel usually will have more mass than the swing keel and might have a better foil shape. A fixed keel boat should be a bit more stable than a swing keel, and have fewer maintenance issues. But with the fixed draft depth, which is usually deeper than that of a raised swing keel, you have more of an issue when trailering and can’t get as close to the shore when you want to mess about on dry land. I think the O’day fixed keel on the 22, sort of shallow draft long chord keel is meant to get the best compromise of low maintenance and easier trailering. Typically, a deeper draft with shorter chord would sail better, but you would would then have the issues of trailering, etc.  

o'day 22 sailboat data

For this boat, the centerboard makes a big difference in how it sails. Without the centerboard, the stub keel does not provide much lift when going to windward, and it makes it difficult to pinch up close to the wind. The centerboards on the Oday trailerables (22, 23, 25) are really simple affairs, and require the least amount of maintenance of any system used by the big boys. That being said, they still do require some maintenance. My two cents (adjusted for inflation): if you like the boat (and I think it is every bit as good a boat as the Catalina 22), find one with a centerboard: it sails better than the stub keel model, and its just as easy to trailer.  

I have a 1978 22' shoal draft (18" keel/2' total draft) and it's an absolute great boat to sail and does very well pinching. I have a sailing friend who designed Morgan yachts for 35 years and he was very excited and surprised about her sailing abilities. There is no maintenance other than painting the hull. If you decide to buy a trailer I bought a rebuilt one. The profile is quite a bit different than a Catalina's. I live in Florida so I can sail year round. In 12 to 15 mph winds I can usually cruise along at hull speed. It's also self-righting and self bailing with positive bouancy. There are no bilge pumps in the cabin. The keel has a locker cover so you can inspect the area as required. I have a 6 hp Merc on mine that does everything I need. A 4 Hp would probably work just as well. I use about 3 gallons of gas a year. I do recommend using non-ethonol gas which can usually be bought at the marina. It's worth the little bit of extra money. A retired Navy Admiral had it down at Siesta Keys for 30 years prior to my buying her. The O'Day is good for lakes, bays, and coastal cruising. Regards, SubdriverMC  

o'day 22 sailboat data

i have a 23ft Santana. it is a little different but i second the swing keel! around here venturing 4 feet outside the channel you can end up in 2-3 feet of water. last weekend 2 boats were aground and yelling for me to tack, i was going to run aground. i sailed by asking if they needed help and they said a friend would haul them off followed by.. how much do you draw?!?... 12 inches rudder and keel up! ... oh.. only real maintanance to worry about is the keel pin which i will be replacing this winter, and at anchor if you dont haul up the keel to the max you get " keel slam" from the rocking from which i have been told can leed to premature pin failure. just inspect it every haul out and you should be good to go! my old boat required a winch which was a real PITA and if the cable snapped which it did, was a nightmare to fix. on this boat we have a fiberglass centerboard which is hauled with a small diamater line and locked in by a cam.  

76 Oday 22 Thanks for all your input. That clears up a lot on fixed keel or swing  

Having a centerboard is complicated specially if sailing single handle. I read a lot about her not pointing. And for my surprise, she did very well. Beacuse of what i read about her ill capabilities, i almost did not buy her. But the seller invited me for a sail, and i was thrilled. I bought it right on the spot. I own a tayana 37, and wanted a day sailer. This is it, the o'day 22 shoal draft is your boat. Everyone has opinions but it is you at the end who will determine if she is for you.  

o'day 22 sailboat data

I'm very happy with my 1983 O'day 22. I have the centerboard version. The ballast is all in the keel, the centerboard is relatively light and no winch is needed. It's controlled with just a simple line, which goes to a simple cleat at the front of the cockpit.
