NOTES
The GANNET is a decked over version of an INTERNATIONAL 14 (Uffa Fox Mark IV), originally built of molded plywood by Fairey Marine, (FAIREY 14), imported to the US by George O'Day, who then had a fiberglass version built (by Marscot Plastics Inc. USA).
Sold primarily as a trainer for colleges, sailing clubs etc. (The first 30 built were sold to the US Naval Academy.)
Photographs of this boat were featured prominently in a number of American 'learn to sail' books in the mid-1960's though the GANNET wasn't a big seller compared to other O'Day models.
A fixed keel version called the MAVERICK was built for the Texas Corinthian Yacht Club as a trainer.
