Manuals
The information supplied to owners by O'Day varied greatly.  Some models
have only a few pages of rigging instructions, while others have extensive
documentation on practically every piece of equipment on board.  I've been
collecting this information for years and I'm making it available in printed form.  
The diagrams and text have been digitally enhanced where possible.  Some
original material I've received has been in very poor condition, and in this
case the text has been transcribed for readability.

Prices shown include shipping via postal mail within the USA and Canada   If
you're outside these countries, please send me your complete address and
the name of the manual you're interested in, and I will respond with a price
quote.  All manuals are laser printed on standard 8-1/2" x 11" letter-size paper.

I've recently added some manuals for non-O'Day sailboats, and will add more
as they become available.

Got a manual not listed?  If you'd like to contribute a copy for the benefit of
other O'Day owners, please contact me by email using the address on the
Contact Us page of this site.
