Top Spreader is missing

Postby Elanpat » Wed Aug 22, 2018 1:15 pm

I have a 1968 O'Day Daysailer. It has not been sailed for several years. I noticed that one of the mast spreaders at the top of the mast is missing. The lower spreaders that are much larger are in place as is the matching spreader on the top part of the mast. Where might I find a replacement spreader? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

Your question has an answer that may seem surprising:

Just remove the two diamond stays and the remaining jumper strut and sail without.
People are finding that they are not needed. Your boat may even sail better without.

Enjoy sailing your DS.
