O’Day Day Sailer

A proven performer for 61 years

From Issue   July 2019

T he production of small boats was booming in the 1950s on both sides of the Atlantic, and really took off in the late ’50s with the introduction of fiberglass. Famed designers Uffa Fox and George O’Day teamed up in 1956 to create the O’Day Day Sailer. Fox is credited with introducing the technique of planing to dinghy racing and designed many significant classes of boats, including the International 14. The story goes that Fox wanted a pure racing dinghy but O’Day wanted the small cuddy added to increase appeal to the recreational market in the U.S., so Fox designed the planing hull and O’Day designed the cuddy. The resulting Day Sailer was a 16’9” centerboarder with a displacement of 575 lbs, which makes for a light load to tow behind the family car. The fractional sloop rig includes a generously sized spinnaker for exciting downwind sailing.

The first Day Sailer was sold in 1958 and immediately became popular in the recreational and racing markets. It was later designated as the Day Sailer I as four different models have since been built, with over 10,000 boats hitting the waterways. Day Sailer (DS) models I through III have been built by eight different manufacturers, with the current Day Sailer being a modified DS I with a few DS II attributes, such as the internal foam flotation and cuddy thwart. The original DS models I, II, and III were built from 1957 to 1990 by the O’Day Company in Fall River, Massachusetts. The DS I and modified versions of it were later built by Can-AM Sailcraft, Rebel, Spindrift, Precision, McLaughlin, Sunfish/Laser Inc. The current builder of the DS I+ is the Cape Cod Shipbuilding Company (CCSC) in Wareham, Massachusetts, holder of the exclusive license since 1994. The Day Sailer Class Association owns the molds that are currently used by CCSC.

The long side benches in the cockpit provide uncrowded seating for six. The sole is above the waterline and is self-bailing.

The early DS I can be identified by wooden thwarts, seats, and cockpit sole, a centerboard lever, open cuddy, and a transom deck. The DS II came out in 1971 with built-in foam flotation. The cuddy opening is smaller than the opening on the DS I because it also acts as a thwart, and a thinner transom allows mounting a small outboard motor without the need for a bracket. The Day Sailer I and II are considered class legal for one design racing, but the DS III is not considered race-legal due to higher freeboard on the transom, which was a departure from Fox’s hull design. O’Day built the III from 1985 to 1990, so to race in One Design regattas it is important to buy a DS I or DS II. The current Day Sailer in production is a modified version of the DS I with improved self-rescuing capabilities, two sealed air tanks, and a cuddy flotation tank with a smaller hatch.

The Day Sailer, no matter which model, is a very versatile boat, easy to rig, sail, transport, and store. With the mast down the boat and trailer take up just a few feet more than an average family car, so can be stored in most garages, though the mast may need to be stowed diagonally. At the ramp, the Day Sailer can be rigged in under 30 minutes: step the mast, add the boom, bend on the jib and main, clip the pop-up rudder onto the transom, and sort out the sheets.

Stepping the mast is the biggest challenge. The 23′4″-long racing mast is stepped through the top of the cabin onto the maststep fixed to the floor of the cuddy, and that can be tricky for one person. The mast does not weigh much, but it is helpful to have a helper at the foot of the mast to guide it into the cuddy opening. The good news with this arrangement is that once the mast is stepped, it is secure, and there’s no rush to attach the forestay.

A mast hinge, a popular option, makes raising the mast much easier.

About 75 percent of the new boats are delivered with a hinged mast, eliminating the awkward gymnastics of stabbing the mast through the cuddy. Once the mast is raised and the forward hole on the hinge pinned, securing the forestay to the bow fitting takes the strain off the hinge. Side stays can then be tightened to take out the slack, but no more than hand tight. Stays that are too tight can damage the hull. Tighten the nuts on the turnbuckles and tape over any cotter pins.

There are different sheeting arrangements for the boom. Some boats have sheets attached in the middle of the boom; the sheet on a DS II starts from a traveler on the transom and ends forward on a swivel cam cleat mounted to the centerboard case. The DS II boom also has a spring in the gooseneck that allowed for roller furling— disconnect the sheet, pull the boom aft, and roll the sail onto the boom. A reefing claw has to be added to connect the sheet to the sail-wrapped boom, but this design is not optimum, nor is the wad of rolled-up sail by the boom’s gooseneck. A better arrangement is to add a conventional set of reefpoints to the mainsail. The boom also has a vang to improve sail control.

The 6′ 3″ beam gives the Day Sailer good stability, enough to keep the boat under someone standing on the foredeck.

The jib on the racing version of the DS is a standard affair, attached with hanks onto the forestay and raised with a halyard. Some skippers add a downhaul to lower the jib from the cockpit. Both the main and jib halyards are led aft on the top of the cuddy. The recreational version of the new DS I comes with a roller-furling jib, which we consider essential for sailing dinghies, especially if singlehanding. We have added a roller-furling jib to our DS II along with the mast hinge. We also added the hardware and rigging for a spinnaker, halyard, spinnaker pole, spinnaker pole control lines, sheet blocks, and jam cleats.

T he Day Sailer is a treat to sail; it handles well, tacks with ease, and powers up quickly with its large sail area. The planing hull is responsive to the tiller, and the wide beam makes it stable. The boat will roll quickly but then sets on a tack, holding it with stable and positive helm control. The centerboard can be easily adjusted from amidships.

We sail a Drascombe Lugger and a Sunfish; the Lugger drives like the family sedan and the Sunfish like our Mustang. The Day Sailer handling is closer to that of the Sunfish—when the breeze picks up, the mainsheet needs to be held in the hand and someone should be ready on the jibsheets. The jibsheets run through the coaming on the DS I and through small cars on the DS II. For the highest performance, skippers have added tiller extensions and hiking straps. There is an outhaul on the battened main; racing versions have barber-haulers and travelers added. Pop the spinnaker, and it will scoot along quite nicely in a light breeze.

The Day Sailer carries 100 sq ft in the main, 45 sq ft in the jib and, for sailing off the wind, another 95 sq ft in spinnaker.

The Day Sailer’s 7′ 4″-long cockpit provides plenty of room for three adults, or two adults and two kids. With four adults it gets cozy; there is not much moving around, so whoever is sitting next to the tiller or foredeck needs to know what to do. It is easy to depower the main, reef it, or furl the jib as needed.

The cuddy is spacious for storing picnic or camping gear, and it affords a space equivalent to a two-person backpacker tent for sleeping aboard for overnight cruising. Adding a topping lift makes the boom nice ridgepole for a boom tent; there’s plenty of room to sleep in the uncluttered cockpit. The Day Sailer has completed many endurance cruising events, such as the Texas 200, Florida 120, and the Everglades Challenge.

A small kicker can be added for auxiliary power. We have used both an electric trolling motor and gas outboard, with best results coming from a 2-1/2-hp four-stroke that pushed push the boat to 6 knots at one-third throttle. The DS I will require a bracket to support and outboard; the DS II transom is thin and sturdy enough for a direct mount. If we’re not going far from home, we occasionally skip the outboard and carry a paddle; with her low coaming we have paddled her a bit, even backward over the transom.

oday 18 sailboat

The transom of the Day Sailer II will accommodate an outboard for auxiliary power. The Day Sailer I will require a bracket.

D ay Sailers are easy to find and inexpensive, considering their capabilities. If you come across one, there are few important things to check. Make sure the centerboard moves in the trunk, see that the forestay tang and bow seam are not pulled up, inspect the cuddy deck for noticeable depression which would indicate failure of the maststep under the cuddy floor, and if it is a DS II look inside the flotation compartments. Rinse her off and get her ready to sail. There is a great Day Sailer Association with a web-based forum, and excellent parts availability.

Great article Kent! I have a sister to your boat, right down to the racing mast and blue hull!! But since we’re moving to the Pacific NW, I’m about to sell it. I’m limiting myself to only 3 boats for the move (and it’s a hard sorting out!!!!). Great write-up about a fantastic boat! Thanks! Charlie

My father was George O’Day. It is nice to know the basic design that my Dad helped create is still vibrant 60 years later. I always find it interesting since Dad was a pure racing sailor that he designed a boat and saw the importance of appealing to the recreational aspect of sailing. He wanted to open the door to the bigger audience to share his passion of sailing.

I sailed with your father on a Hobie 16 at a Red Cross small craft instructor program. So much fun sailing with a legend.

Charlie we know it’s hard, the Day Sailer is such a timeless boat. If she has to change skippers, find her a good one.

Miss Beth, so wonderful to hear from a family member, it must have been quite an adventure to grow up around boating and racing. That Day Sailer hull was Cap’n Jack’s favorite, we enjoyed looking at it. Thank you for the insight into your family’s history.

Cheers, Skipper and Clark

I’ve had an O’Day for years, my first sailboat. I love sailing her around our little lake.

This boat is the best for a small family. In Brazil it’s a great option.

O’Day DS was my first brand-new boat. I was a “veteran”of maybe six months sailing in the late 1960s and she taught me to love sailing.

Great boat design. I’ve sailed different ones on and off over the years. Still a favorite.

Beth, your father made great boats as my father still has an O’Day 20 he bought new in ’76 and it’s still like new and a great sailing boat!

I recently bought a 1966 model after downsizing from a Viking 28. My father owned a Rhodes 19 and we sailed that boat for years on the western end of Lake Ontario. The design was similar, so the transition to the 16 was easy. I love the boat because even in high winds I can make a simple adjustment to the main with reef points. Solo sailing is fun and safe. I can see why so many were sold.

Hello, I just bought O’day sailboat. I do believe from what I’ve been reading that it’s a Daysailer 1. I was told this boat has never been registered and never had a kicker motor on it, I can’t find the metal tag on the transom but I see the two rivet holes where it should have been. Is there any other place on this boat to find the serial number? I would like to put a kicker on it and register it and, if not, is there a way to register this boat? Thank you for helping

The requirements to register a small boat that has not been registered before is different for each state. In NY, a boat is registered through the DMV. HIN numbers are placed on the right side of the transom. If you do not have one your boat was made prior to 1972.

Thank you for the reply, I’m working on getting a HIN number now.

Check with O’Day. Some manufacturers hide a second HIN onboard. Worth a shot.

My boat has a plate on the inside toward the front of the boat. On the bulkhead (might not be the right term) behind the mast. You’ll have to crawl into the cubby to see it. It’s a little plate 2″ x 4″ and shows Hull no. and Class no. The paperwork I have says the boat was made in 1967. Does anyone know the difference between Hull number and Class number?

Can anyone give me today’s value of a 1960 O’Day Day Sailer, #333, with a small motor that goes on the mount with sails that all sit on a Dilly trailer? It has all the original woodwork that my husband redid. It does not have a spinnaker but has the jib and main and a Proctor mast.

My daughter and I are looking for an older (less expensive) sailboat. Not sure where your at , we are South of Boston. The O’Day is our first choice. If you are going sell, please reply to this comment. Thanks

[I’ll connect sellers to John. Ed.]

16′ O’Day Day Sailor with trailer and motor

2013 DS for sale in Sharon,MA. needs work on floatation tanks

At 30 years old, I just bought my first sailboat which is a 1965 DS I. The boat has sat for a few years and she needed a good power-washing plus painting of the hull and inside the cubby and several new lines. I’m completely inexperienced with sailing (plenty of time cleaning boats, though) and couldn’t be happier to learn on such a beautiful vessel. Thanks for this article! It’s great to get some background info. Plus, plenty of words to highlight as I expand my boating vocab.

Day Sailers are easy to find? I guess you know where to look (certainly no offers in Craigslist). I have not been lucky enough to come across a good one that is 10 to 20 years old. I live in Massachusetts. Would you mind sharing where to look for one?

I have an O’Day day sailer 16.5 ‘ up for the taking. Our family had years of good times sailing and camping with It. Great family boat. Wooden seats and rails. Needs some work. In central Massachusetts

I am assuming you have gotten rid of your O’Day day sailer – if not, I may be interested. I’m new to sailing at 57 years young! I just took lessons at KYC here in Blue Hill, ME and am looking for a great starter boat that I can learn in and have fun on the bay.

Thanks, Kelly

Actually, I just bought a 1989 DS2 from Craigslist, on trailer, for $300. It needs only minor work and a lot of cleaning. I hope to float it Saturday to see if it sinks like a rock (I know it has flotation), and will need glass work, but I could see nothing amiss while on the trailer.

So, never say never.

Hi Laranja, I just read your comment about trying to find a used O’Day Day Sailer. I live in Wareham where Cape Cod Shipbuilding is located, they are the current builders of the Day Sailer. They usually have used boats available. I have a 1971 DS, a wonderful boat.

I have a 2013 DS for sale in Sharon,MA. needs work on floatation tanks

Fantastic article

Interested in purchasing a fine example that was actively sailed

I agree with the many positive comments above. Great article! I was a longtime owner of an O’Day Widgeon (14′), and after many boat-less years I’m pleased to have purchased a 1984 O’Day Daysailer II just last week. It’s in good condition, and after sourcing a few needed part, I’ll enjoy it on lakes here in Georgia. Thanks for the great article, which has served as an orientation of sorts for me as to what to expect when I launch her for her maiden voyage under my ownership. A long-time marketing and sales executive, I’m naming her SAILS CALL!

I just got a DaySailer, thought it was a 67 DS1 but the transom is thick with a box on the port side by the transom so not sure now DSII?

I just today bought and brought home to MA a 1966 O’Day Day Sailer (as shown on the registration from NH), and it has a thick transom with lidded box on the port side. Also has a wide cuddly opening and wooden cowling and thwarts as described above for a DSI.

We’re down sizing from a 53′ Pearson to an O’Day 18 that someone offered us. I have no qualms about the sailing, but the temperature of the water here (Massachusetts to Connecticut) worries me very much, after a lifetime in the tropics. Are these dry boats when sailed conservatively?

I have a 2013 Cape Cod built DS for sale in MA. Needs some work on floatation tanks.

I just sold our Venturer 22 and picked up (rescued) an O’Day 16 DS. A couple weeks in the shop and it looks ready to sail. One question: the roller reefed main (boom) does not “lock in.” I suppose I could jiffy reef it but does anyone have experience with the roller reefing boom? Am I missing a part (the claw) or do I just not get it.

I want to buy an O’Day sail 17′

We have a 1976, 17′ foot O’Day DSll (?) on trailer that we are transferring to another family member. We are trying to figure out the best way to get it from Oregon to New Hampshire. Any ideas out there?

O'Day 19

O'Day 19 is a 18 ′ 11 ″ / 5.8 m monohull sailboat designed by Raymond Hunt (C.R. Hunt & Assoc.) and John Deknatel and built by Bangor Punta Corp. and O'Day Corp. starting in 1979.

Drawing of O'Day 19

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Centerboard weight = 52 lbs / 23.6 kg Displacement includes a crew weight of 640 lbs / 290.3 kg Minimum trailering weight = 1350 lbs / 612.35 kg

The duck boats are rallying! Follow the live coverage from the Celtics parade today

The celebration of the Boston Celtics' NBA championship will be in full swing today, Friday, June 21, as over a million Boston sports fans ― who are no strangers to the iconic rolling rallies and duck boat parades that celebrated multiple championship titles in the past two decades ― are expected to flock to the city once again.

The parade will celebrate the Celtics' blowout   106-88 victory  over the  Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA title in five games. The win marks the team's 18th title, breaking a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers and setting a new record.

Celtics Parade wraps up

Commentators are estimating well over one million people showed up for the parade, which wrapped up just ahead of 12:30.

While the crowd was huge, people were commenting on how well behaved it was. Laura Cunning, of South Boston, said the crowd was energetic but got along very well.

"It was great, a great presentation of our city and our champions," Cunning said.

The Celtics parade is about halfway through

The crowd was electric as Coach Joe Mazzulla, Kristaps Porzingis and MVP Jayson Tatum made their way through Boylston Street on their duck boats. Chants of "MVP" echoes through neighborhood as attendees raved against the steel barricades as their champions passed by.

The Celtics parade has begun!

The Duck Boats have begun rolling in Boston, displaying the championship trophy to more than 1 million onlookers. While original crowd estimates said about a million people were likely to be in attendance, people at the scene are estimating the crowd is larger.

Mufaro Mutuswa of Billerica said she was excited for the parade to come through.

"Right now, it's very hot but I wouldn't trade it for anything," Mutuswa said

Mutuswa also said she is a Celtics fan because of her Boston pride, and because she likes winning.

"I like to be a part of this," Mutuswa said. "This is absolutely amazing, it's always worth it in the end."

What's the 'Don't stop disbelieving' slogan on Jayson Tatum's shirt?

The slogan refers to how many sports pundits doubted Tatum's ability to lead the team to a championship during the past year. The t-shirt is a symbol that Tatum has apparently embraced those who don't believe in him.

What time does Celtics parade start?

The parade will be at 11 a.m. That's the time the parade has started to celebrate recent Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics wins.

Celtics Parade Route 2024

The parade is set to begin at the front of TD Garden on Causeway Street, then roll by City Hall Plaza on Cambridge Street and the along Boston Common on Tremont Street before ending by the Hynes Convention Center on Boylston Street.

How long is the Celtics Parade?

The parade route is about two miles long. The event is expected to last about two hours.

Hynes Convention Center area starts to fill with fans

With the parade about to start, fans are lining the streets in their Championship gear.

Steve Gladstone of Needham said he's been a Celtics fan all his life.

"It's awesome to spend time with my son and be able to celebrate a Celtics championship," Gladstone said.

He said that his children have been spoiled by so many Celtics wins.

"It used to be the city who's always expecting a loss," Gladstone said. "Now, we're ready to win every year."

Fans heading to Boston to watch Celtics parade

Waves of green hit Union Station Friday morning as sports fans from across Central Massachusetts began the trip to Boston to celebrate the Celtics first championship title in 16 years.

"I bleed green," Wilson Montalvo, 44, of Worcester said as he flexed his "Boston strong" tattoo and showed off his hat with a 508 area code.

Where to get Boston Celtics merch

If you're looking for the bucket hat Luke Kornet wore in interviews earlier today, you can buy it  online at the NBA Celtics store here.

Other popular items include the gold-trimmed  "Champions Boston Celtics" t-shirt  for $40, the  white gold-trimmed snapback  for $39 .  The lineup includes everything from sock and shoes, to pendants and flags, to shirts and jerseys, and hats as well.

Other items up for grabs:

  • Replica  Larry O'Brien trophies  are on sale online for about $100.
  • Autographed jerseys are going for  $ 1000  to  $2000  in price, whereas balls autographed by Jayson Tatum are priced around  $800.
  • To purchase Celtics merchandise in-person, you can go to  Dick's Sporting Goods ,  Champs , or any stores that sell sports apparel and memorabilia in Massachusetts.

Officials celebrate the Celtics

Ahead of the parade stepping off, state leaders thanked the Celtics team for the pride they brought to Boston.

"We are in love with this team because it is a team. And they had given us so much, " Governor Maura Healey, who was a professional basketball player, said. "And here's the thing about basketball, the team game, everybody's gotta roll, everybody's got a part. Some nights it was different person stepping up, but they got it done as a team."

As great as they are on the court, she said they are even better off the court.

She told people to "show love and appreciation not just for the trophy, but for what they give to community, to the state, to the region. They are role models. They are leaders. And today we're going to party and celebrate the Boston Celtics," she said.

Celtics players do Q&A before parade starts

Before heading out on the Duck Boats, members of the Boston Celtics gathered at TD Garden for a Q&A forum, hosted by former Celtic and current broadcaster Brian Scalabrine.

Players had the chance to comment on winning the championship.

"These guys were ready for that moment," said center Al Horford. "I'm happy we were able to get it done."

"I'm glad on this side now, " added guard Jrue Holliday. He noted when he first arrived to the team this year, he "knew that we had something special."

Guard Derrick White commented, "We didn't want to skip any steps...we knew what the end goal was."

Center Kristaps Porzingis said he was upset that he got hurt before being able to help the team wrap up the championship series.

"It was heartbreaking for me," he said. "We took care of business."

"Whatever it took for us to win, that's what we were willing to do," Shooting guard Jalen Brown added.

"It starts from the top down," said forward Jayson Tatum, on how the players function on the court, citing Horford as his prime example of inspiration.

How many championship parades have used the duck boats?

The duck boats have been used for championship parades in Boston since 2002. The  Boston Duck Boat website  states, "Boston Duck Tours, over the years, has had the honor and pleasure of hosting four of Boston’s sports teams in Rolling Rally Championship parades 12 different times."

According to the website, with duck boats "players could stand on, and wave to the crowds below. It was close enough to get these players right up to their fans. But, also far enough to keep them from being mobbed by the crowds."

Boston's duck boats are famous: What's their history?

Attorneys make closing arguments in trial of Oshkosh man accused of causing 2022 Fox River boat crash

oday 18 sailboat

OSHKOSH – The seventh day of trial for an Oshkosh man accused of recklessly endangering safety in a 2022 boat crash wrapped up Tuesday with closing arguments from prosecution and defense attorneys.

Jurors will return Wednesday morning to begin deliberations.

Jason Lindemann, 53, is charged with two felony counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety, as well as 12 misdemeanor counts of failing to render aid in a boating accident and one misdemeanor count of negligent operation of a boat.

Assistant attorneys general Emily Thompson and Tara Jenswold say Lindemann's behavior the night of the crash was criminally reckless, and he knowingly created a risk of death or great bodily harm to other people out on the water by driving his boat after a day of drinking, not turning on the proper lights on his boat and operating the boat at a high rate of speed.

"It's Jason Lindemann – and Jason Lindemann alone – who is responsible for this crash," Jenswold said during the prosecution's closing argument.

Lindemann's defense attorney, Scott Ceman, argues the crash was nothing more than an accident and if anyone was at fault, it was the driver of the paddleboat, not Lindemann.

The paddleboat operator, Ceman argued, had bright exterior lights on the boat that are only supposed to be activated when docking, and caused a visibility issue by hiding the paddleboat's navigational lights and blending it in with the bright lights on the shoreline.

Just before 10 p.m. on July 9, 2022, Lindemann crashed his powerboat, filled with six passengers, into a double-decker paddleboat cruise owned and operated by  On The Loos Cruises , on the Fox River in Oshkosh, between the Oregon Street and Wisconsin Street bridges.

Lindemann had accelerated his boat after passing under the bridge — which, Ceman pointed out at trial, is standard practice for boats after exiting the no wake zone.

The owner and operator of the On The Loos Cruise paddleboat, Jeff Loos, told investigators he saw Lindemann's powerboat speeding toward his boat. He said it appeared the powerboat might pass on the left at one point and on the right at another. When Loos realized his boat was going to be hit, he began turning his boat, which attorneys said has a maximum speed of about five miles per hour. Lindemann's boat crashed into the paddleboat's left side, its hull going up in the air.

Prosecutors say after crashing into the paddleboat, Lindemann drove away without stopping to share his identification information or make sure everyone on the boat were all right. Police didn't find Lindemann until the following day, after he had spent the night in his boat on Lake Winnebago.

The paddleboat had 44 passengers on board. No one was seriously injured, but some passengers experienced minor injuries that they received treatment for in the days and weeks after the crash. The 12 charges of failing to render aid in a boating accident correspond with 12 people who suffered injuries in the crash — including one of the six passengers aboard Lindemann's powerboat.

In her closing argument, Jenswold said Lindemann's failure to stop at the scene after crashing and seemingly hiding in his boat until morning is evidence he was aware of his guilt.

"If it was an accident, why'd you leave?" she said.

Jenswold also pointed out that an officer testified earlier in the trial that messages and calls from the evening of the crash into the next morning appeared to have been deleted from Lindemann's phone when officers conducted a search of it.

In the defense's closing argument, Ceman countered that Lindemann did in fact pull up next to the paddleboat after the crash, but could not safely stop due to some intoxicated passengers from the paddleboat acting "aggressive" toward him.

He also said officers never considered that the case was not a hit-and-run, and thus did not properly investigate. Ceman also claimed the boat crash investigation was not thoroughly carried out because there were no serious injuries.

Despite the prosecution's claims, Ceman argued that Lindemann was not drunk that night. Because officers did not get in touch with Lindemann the night of the crash, the prosecution called witnesses who had seen Lindemann at two bars earlier in the day to testify that they believed he appeared intoxicated.

A few witnesses, however, testified that Lindemann was not drinking. Ceman argued these witnesses, who had been spending time with Lindemann during the day, were more credible than people who observed him from afar. Prosecutors said witnesses who had close personal relationships with Lindemann were likely protecting him.

RELATED: Trial begins for Oshkosh man accused of driving his powerboat into a paddleboat on the Fox River in 2022

RELATED: Oshkosh man pleads not guilty to charges in July Fox River powerboat-paddleboat crash

Attorneys similarly disagreed about the credibility of other witnesses.

In his closing argument, Ceman named multiple witnesses who had testified during the trial and claimed they had lied about various things. Some, he said, lied about the crash's impact on them likely for motivations of benefiting from civil lawsuits filed against Lindemann.

He said one passenger's description of blood and glass on the paddleboat's deck after the crash was "just another lie in a parade of lies put forth here by the state."

In the prosecution's rebuttal argument, Jenswold pointed out that of the 54 witnesses the state called to testify at the trial, Ceman claimed in his closing argument that at least 16 of them lied.

"To get up here and say, as the defense did, 'they're all lying' — that just doesn't make sense," Jenswold said. "These people that he has called liars, many of them had no motive to lie."

Jury instructions and closing arguments took up the entire afternoon, about 3½ hours. Winnebago County Circuit Court Judge Michael Gibbs decided to send the jury home instead of beginning deliberations Tuesday evening, after what he said has been a long trial.

Family wonders what went wrong when sailboat capsized in Lake Michigan

By Shardaa Gray

Updated on: June 19, 2024 / 11:23 AM CDT / CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) – The family of the 53-year-old woman who died after a sailboat capsized in Lake Michigan over the weekend was left wondering what went wrong.

Michael Bolan said his daughter, Cristen Bolan, known as Chrissy, created energy everywhere she went and loved the adventure of sailing. She was athletic, an experienced sailor, and a strong swimmer.

snapshot-2024-06-18t160228-646.jpg

"Chrissy must have gotten a mouth full of water that dumped," Michael Bolan said. "The waves got up to four feet out there, as I understand it, so that's enough for trouble."

It was a Father's Day Michael will never forget after his daughter was supposed to be at dinner with the rest of the family on Sunday, but she never showed up and didn't answer her phone.

Her boat launched in Evanston before the 12-foot vessel capsized around dusk near Winnetka. Chrissy and another woman were on the boat.

Michael, a retired judge who once worked as a lifeguard, said the officials said Chrissy's friend was able to swim two miles to the shore in Winnetka, but he is not sure why his daughter was unable to. Both women were wearing life vests, officials said. 

"You got two people out there, similarly situated," he said. "The water is the same for both of them. One makes it and one doesn't and they're both physically fit. So what intervened? I don't know."

Michael said if they had a flashing light on the boat, that could have helped both women.

She was one of two people who died after going into the water following a mishap on Lake Michigan over the past few days. On Monday, two teenagers went onto the lake on a kayak, which flipped over. A 16-year-old girl was pulled to the shore by a witness. A 16-year-old boy was also pulled from the water, but was later taken to a hospital where he died.

Then on Monday afternoon, two more people were pulled from the lake after nearly drowning in Montrose Harbor. A woman who was rescued was initially unresponsive but was resuscitated and taken to a hospital.
