It all started back in the 40’s with the Phillip Rhodes-designed Hurricane and then the Rhodes 19.  Then Olympic medalist and designer George O’Day, who built Uffa Fox’s Day Sailor and brought it to fame, produced the Rhodes 19 in Fiberglass in the day when family day sailing was on the rise. O’Day then modified the cockpit of the Rhodes 19, added a large cuddy cabin with berths, redesigned the deck, simplified the rigging and called it the O’Day Mariner. That was in 1963 and it was O’Day’s entry into the cruising market. A bit later the centerboard became an option (it was first offered with a fixed keel) to facilitate trailering and sailing in shallow waters and this configuration eventually became the preferred design.  In 1968 O’Day lengthened the cockpit to the transom eliminating the small afterdeck, raised the cockpit sole to make it self-draining and enclosed the previously open cuddy.  With the cockpit modification quarter berths were added and that added sleeping for two in addition to the two already in the forepeak – hence the name 2+2.  In 1972 the deck was further streamlined and the boat was built until 1979 when O’Day decided to get into the big boat production, but not before an amazing 3,771 Mariners were built in that 16 year period.  Spindrift then bought the molds and continued production, but since, Stuart Marine out of Maine bought the molds and the Mariner are built there to this day.  D&R Marine in MA bought the O’Day parts and so use and original parts are available for the Mariner to this day.  Some years ago they celebrated the 50th Anniversary with a huge rendezvous at Mystic Seaport, in CT.
