We just bought a 14' O'day Javelin to day sail while we refit
for cruising. Figured it would also be a nice boat for my wife to sail since she has not sailed a small boat since high school
. The Javelin came with main, jib
so it has all the same sails
as our Pearson
just at a very smaller scale.
Has anyone here owned or sailed one of these boats? If so is there anything we should watch out for? We would like to keep her on a mooring
, is it truly self bailing as advertised? The fractional rig seems a bit flimsy to me, can she be sailed in anything over 10 knots of wind
About 5000 were made over ten years and the price
for this one with trailer and 2 hp Honda
was to hard to pass up.
