What company manufactured my DSII?

Postby Patriciasailing » Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:32 pm

Does anybody know who might be the manufacturer of my DSII from 1984 HIN # XDY12775F484 ?

I want to order a boat cover for it at SLO Sail and Canvas (good choice?) and they require the manufacturer to know what boat cover would best fit. A booklet by Roger Conrad states that its by Oday from year 1972-1984 from hull numbers 4522 to 12943.

Thank you in advance.

My apologies, I just read that it was from the O'day Corporation. the DSII has a plaque celebration its 25th Anniversary from 1959-1984.
So I guess it is by O´day Corp. after all.
Happy sailings all!

The XDY in the HIN number is the designation for O'Day. The boat most likely came from Bangor Punta Marine in Fall River, Mass. as mine did as stated in the manufacturer's delivery title. hth

Patricia,

This post is a little old so it may be too late, but I actually got that SLO trailering cover for my 1982 DSII manufactured by O'Day and I think it is excellent. I highly recommend it. It fits like a custom cover on my boat, and at a fraction of the estimates I got from local canvas shops to actually make a custom one. I don't trailer with it but keep it outside all year, so I still got the heavier fabric - not Sunbrella, I think they call it Top Gun or something?

The only thing I would say is that be careful as it will hold a LOT of water or snow in the cockpit and put a ton of strain on the boat and cover if you don't make sure it is tented enough to shed completely (that's not the fault of the design, but pretty much true about any cover on any daysailer). I didn't like the little tie-off points to the mast because I was afraid that would be too much weight on the mast if we got a lot of snow before I could clear it off, so I made a chunky A-frame sawhorse type contraption that I put in the cockpit and then put the cover over it. But otherwise it keeps the boat dry as a bone and seems like it will take a beating and hold up for many years.
