I don't personally stock or sell parts for O'Day sailboats. Many of the fittings, hardware,
sailing gear, and rigging that O'Day used are off-the-shelf items that you can find in
your local marine supply store, or order online from a catalog. Some of the larger
suppliers are West Marine , Boater's World and Defender.
For parts that are specific to O'Day boats, the best source is Rudy Nickerson at D & R
Marine. Rudy was the materials manager for O'Day before they, like a number of
sailboat manufacturers, went bankrupt in the late 80's/early 90's. Rudy is a storehouse
of knowledge about O'Days and can most likely hook you up with the parts you need.

has been reported to work better than e-mail.
