I currently own an O'Day 28. Previously I've had a Catalina 270 and a Precision 23. The Catalina had a wheel and the others a tiller. Only the Precision had a centerboard. I would stick with a tiller because of the feel it gives you. Don't worry about O'days being out of production. They have a very active support group at and several good sources for parts. I would go with an O'Day over the Catalina if condition is similar. Consider a Precision 23 also if you can find one (several are for sale if you can go get them). They are simpler, lighter, and better designed in my opinion.
