From Meridith CUTTING on 06/02/1999:
My boat was made in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and I have met the builder. He went on to form
Northern Yachts in Ajax. There are quite a number of Northerns sailing in this area. The O'Day Outlaw
was redesigned and had a fin keel added to replace the full keel and that boat became the Northern 25.
There is another O'Day Outlaw at the Oshawa Yacht Club, but I don't know its age or hull no. When the
boat was redesigned, a foot was taken off the stern and the cabin space was enlarged. The boat also
got a lot lighter, as they had found out at that time just how strong fiberglass was and they didn't have to
use as much lay-up as they were previously to get a strong boat. Boats of the age that mine is tend to
be very strong and although heavy for a 26 footer, she is very responsive and fast. The overall design is
similar to that of an Alberg 30 if you are familiar with that boat. There is a reverse transom and the
outboard sits in a well covered by a lazarette. The whole picture looks very clean. Because of the
weight and hull design (Wineglass shape) the boat is very seakind and does not pond even in the
heaviest seas. The baby sister of the outlaw was the cruising version of the O'Day Tempest.
