Info on a 70 Oday 23' Pop Top

Hey guys, i've officially started my search for my first sail boat. This one popped up on c-list. What i've found so far is they only produced these from 70 to 73. Was the run so short because it's a bad idea in the first place? LOL

I'm searching for the biggest bang for the buck currently. I'm 6'4" and would like to find the biggest trailer able boat I can get. I'm not afraid of projects and doing the work myself. When buying cars i've found they are the cheapest when I have to tow them home. Obviously a boat is thirstier for money - I just enjoy the journey of projects.

My concerns would be rainy weekends with this boat, or nasty weather on Lake Erie? It seems to me that the separation on deck would make this boat primarily a sunshine boat only? Any info or past experiences would be fantastic!!!
