Opportunity for repair-minded sailor. Fix up and sail, or part out for cash. Reasonable offers will be considered.

Selling our 1973 O'Day 22 sailboat. It's a masthead sloop with shoal keel. Comes with trailer and Mercury 7.5 EL 2 stroke outboard and other components to get you on the water.

We love this boat and spent many summer weekends sailing and camping on it. The shoal keel and shallow draft enable the boat to pull up to the shoreline so you can camp overnight, or spend a few hours on a secluded beachfront swimming and playing in the sand and sun. The boat has a V birth which sleeps two fairly comfortably, and two quarter births. I'm 6ft tall and slept comfortably on one of the quarter births. We bought the sailboat in 2020 from what I understand was the second owner. Both previous owners took exceptional care of this sailboat.

The boat does require some repair in order to sail. The mast cradle pulled completely out of the fiberglass during a 70mph wind storm on the lake, and will need to be reinstalled. The port side chainplate/side shroud pulled completely through from where it was attached to a bulkhead inside the cabin, and will need to be replaced/repaired as well. I've been told by a local sailor/expert that the repairs should be easy for someone who knows what they are doing. I just don't have the space or resources to do it myself. We had the sailboat set to be professionally repaired last year, but unfortunately the person came down with severe health issues and wasn't able to do the job.

Sail inventory:
- 2 mainsails. One mainsail was new in 2020, and the second is original to the boat.
- 1 working jib in fair condition.
- 1 150 Genoa in good condition.
- 1 storm jib in excellent condition.

Mercury 7.5 2 stroke outboard was professionally serviced in 2021. It started up and ran perfectly the last time we used it to navigate out of the marina. I haven't ran the engine this year, but I believe it should work fine. No leaks or issues apparent.

Sailboat also includes a danforth anchor, misc dock lines and bumpers, 5-gallon gas tank, battery, and an original to the boat 2 burner white-gas stove (I've never tested to see if it works).

Comes with original, orange, cabin cushions which are in great shape and still in use when the boat was in the water

Overall length: 21' 8"
Waterline length: 18' 11"
Beam: 7' 2"
Draft 1' 11"

We love this sailboat and really don't want to part with it. I just don't have the resources or space to make the repairs.
