There are a bunch of other O'Day owners here so you are in the right place.
Does your O'Day 272 have a winged keel, plain shoal draft or fin keel?
I got a chance to go on a 272 that had a winged keel this past fall and we had a lot of fun. That boat was a bit tender but the owner had it for many years and knew when to reef it. What he did not know is that when we went aground in an ebbing tide in LI Sound that the winged keel would keep the boat upright, even when all the water had gone out. When the water came back in some 5+ hours later (8' tidal range) we motored out of there.
I am no Flordidian but what is nice about either the east or west coast of FL is that there are inside and outside passages almost everywhere. The inside routes can be a little shallow which is why I ask about your keel type.
