Not the first time I see Philsboat posting
about his experience with the ODay 322. First, the OP could be talking about the Oday 32 not the 322, very different boats.
Regarding the keel, I own a 322, and take issue with your generalization about the boat
....similar to your story, I know a friend who lost
his J105 when it lost
the keel, and heard a story about a J109 losing it's keel, I also heard a story of a Pearson
losing it's keel and recently a Bene, I wonder if you would generalize about all the boats that have lost their keels...with old boats is mostly about maintenance
...take care of your boat
and it will take care of you....
To the OP, if you are asking about the 322, I will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
