OOD 34 My first post on here

Hi everyone.
this is my first post so bare with me. not sure if there is anyone out there with an OOD 34. Be great if there is as id love to get some info as im new to the boat and yet to take her out sailing.
there are plenty of pics from years gone by of the boat when the last owner had her and she was one of a few boats that survived the 1979 fastnet race
Anyway im looking forward to hearing from anyone and and will be looking for some info and help as issues arise as im sure they will. The boat is sound but need a lot of TLC. due to the previous owner not being well and not going on the boat for 3 years
Any help would be great tho.
OOD 34 (CONTESSA) sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

The link above will show you My baby in all her glory back in the day

Regards

Martyn

Hi pete, yea you could say that. I believe she's one of only a few OOD34 left as there were not many built. Excellent racing yacht aswell. She's got a list of winnings and I'm hoping to get her back doing what she seas made for ASAP. I'm getting married in August so money is really tight ATM so ice had to put the boat on the back burner as they say till I'm all sorted out
