This vessel was produced in several versions—two types of poptops and a solid top—over five years, 1970 to 1974. A Mk II version (page 186) with no poptop (and other differences) followed in 1977. In the Mk I version, one of the poptop designs was a "convertible," that is, the whole cabin trunk roof lifted on struts (see phantom view). However, there were problems with sealing out rain and spray in the joint between cabin trunk and deck, and the through-the-deck mast. Consequently, the design was dropped in favor of an alternative poptop in which only the aft section lifted. This allowed the mast to be stepped in a tabernacle on the cabintop, making mast setup at a launching ramp much easier. Best features: Compared to her comps, the O'Day is in the middle on most dimensional parameters—not a bad place to be. The dinette layout conforms to the tastes of many 1970s sailors. Worst features: No significant negative features were noted by us, other than the "convertible" poptop idea.
