Re: Oday 240 (wing keel) vs Oday 25 (cb shoal)
Taking a look at sailboatdata.com the draft of the 240 is just a couple more inches than the 25. OAL is a couple inches more on the 25. The cabin top shape is different. The cabin layout is probably what you need to decide on.
One thing I noticed on the photo of the 240 is a lack of life lines around the boat. The photo shows bow pulpit and stern hoops. The photo of the 25 shows bow pulpit with life lines and stanchions. The lines appear to end at the cockpit.
I know the 1980 25 has full lifelines and bow/stern pulpits. You might want to consider full life lines if your kids will be wanting to walk the deck.
