Re: O'Day 22 - What to Look for?

Moisture in the hull and deck could be a problem with a boat that old. Do they have a current survey? if not it might be worth it to get one. I bought a 40' O'Day last fall, and because of the survey I knew there were problems that needed to be addressed. As a result I ended up paying $15,000 less that what they wanted and had the work done over the winter. Spent about the same ammount of money in the end, but have a boat with a tight hull.
