Rep Power: 13
I'm coming into this a little late, but here are my comments anyway. The O'day 30 is a masthead rig where most of the power comes from the headsail. If, like most people, your headsail is a big 150, I doubt you will notice the smaller main. If you have a small headsail, a 135 or smaller, the smaller main may hurt.
I would not recommend modifying the sail. You will end up some cobbled together thing that won't work well, and no one will ever want.
Lastly, a smaller sail is better than no sail.
