Arrow Looking foe leads on a Cape Dory 30 Project Boat

I am currently hunting to eastern half of America for a Cape Dory 30. I prefer a mild project boat or ugly duckling. I am not against doing a minor refitting but need to know I am not buying from a dreamer. If you have seen one around that has laid in wait for more then a season or two drop me a line. I will be living aboard whatever I buy with my girl friend and small child. The only requirement I have it that the boat be mildly usable and not have any delamination below the water line or on the hull itself. Prefer it to be more of a case of brightwork, polishing, and updating the rigging, maybe engine re-work. I really want to avoid doing any glass work if I can. Anything else I think I am more then ready to conquor.

Aloha Keith,
Have you been watching eBay? Have seen a couple of Cape Dorys on there in the last couple of months.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Hey Keith,
I've had nothing but good experiences on eBay and have been using it for quite a long time. Hard to get things over here on the outer islands without using the auctions once in awhile.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

I lived on Guam 96929 your friendly island to the south west of you about 25% further then the mainland is the other way for you. So I know all about having to deal with ebay from time to time. But now that I am back in the states the ebay horror stories are around and repeated a lot.
