Ours was a 322 which was very similar to the 302, but the aft cabin was swapped. It was Starboard on our 322 but I believe the aft cabin is port on a 302.
We did like the boat but bought it as our first boat, more or less to see how we liked sailing. It was in good condition and we felt we could sail it a few seasons and get out of it without loosing much if sailing wasn't something we enjoyed. As it turned out, we like it a lot and since we spent nearly every weekend on the boat we soon decided AC was a must have along with refridgeration so we started a search which ended with us moving to a Catalina 36.
In my opinion the Oday three digit series boats were somewhat ahead of their time in the space they offered, are equal in build quality to the competition of the time and are pretty decent sailing boats. That said, I was never in love with the looks of the gray hulls and dark plexi.
