Don't be so hasty to dismiss the larger wheel.. sitting outboard with the wheel easy to reach makes a lot of sense for visibility and steering in waves, and it also provides an extra bit of leverage with things load up.. If you buy it and want to swap I've got a 32" wheel we can talk about..
The ones on yachtworld are very pricey, I'm wondering if they are worth it, they sure look well built in pictures.

edit: I just looked up the J/32...WOW! Now that's a pretty boat.
