Re: Oday 240 (wing keel) vs Oday 25 (cb shoal)
I owned an ODAY 240 for a few years and I can tell you it is a great boat for doing exactly what you are looking to do. Any 25' boat will be tight down below for 5 people. But the 240 has a great floor plan with an enclosed head which may be the largest selling point. The standard roller furling for the genoa will make sail handling easier. It is a breeze to raise and lower sails. As long as your kids are little - say under 10 it shouldn't be to cramped in there. And the newer boat will give you a much nicer below deck experience. The interior on my boat only had some minor soiling on the carpeted headliner which can be easily cleaned with a carpet cleaner and a little effort. It can be made to look like a much newer boat. good luck with either boat.
