Re: Replace Wheel with Tiller? Can it be done?
I thought most of the O'Day 30's came with wheels. I'm surprised you're finding one WITH a tiller. The conversion is several thousand dollars. Is that an investment you want to make? Is the cockpit on the 30 that you're seeing actually set up for a wheel? That is, does it have the "T" style layout that allows you to move around the wheel? If not, you'll need a folding wheel, but even then it's going to be a PITA when underway.
Personally, if the O'Day is the only boat for you (I'm not judging, everybody has their wants/needs), I'd hold off until a 30 with a wheel came on the market.
What's your budget and what year(s) are you looking for?
