OK, so a place near me has an 1982 O'Day 25 and a 1980 Catalina 25. Both with centerboards and trailers. They have comparable equipment & price. This size and trailerable is something I am interested in. So that being said, what are the differences in sailing these two boats? Mast stepping ease would be nice to know as well. Anything anyone has had experience with would be great. The obvious inspection issues aside. Also, not being cranky but, please don't suggest some other type of boat to look at too.
There are not a lot for sale here in MN and the surounding area and these are what I am interested in. These are what are available for what I want in a boat.
