I am new to sailing and I'm trying to select a boat to both learn on and enjoy with the family (wife and daughter and another daughter when she's in from college). I want to use it in the lakes around AR, OK and MO by trailering to a selected lake and paying a slip fee for several months and then moving to another lake for some change of scenery. Eventually, I'd like to trailer to the FL panhandle and slip it there and enjoy a couple of times a year.
All that being said, I'm focusing on O'day boats. Don't ask me why, I just like the looks and the layout. I've looked at Catalina, Hunter etc... but I keep coming back to O'day. I have found two models that fit my price range. One is a '78 O'day 25 and the other is a '88 O'day 240. I have read about some issues with the 240 with heeling and being too tender. I don't see that too much in comments with the 25. ANY comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated... even if concerning other brands.
