$6,199.95 is a deal, hope you won it Rob and the boat will go to Cedar Point. Used rig, pole, rudder, winches and gear alone are worth that. The $1,800 you saved is probably enough for a set of pre-owned sails to get you to the starting line.

I would like to update the progress of the 1982 J30 #385 listed for sale here on this site. I have a contract with new owner (marine dealer here in CT) who bid on boat because he could not believe it was still available for sale at $6000. The dealer sent his surveyor here before auction closed and confirmed the condition report I provided. The dealer has contracted me to keep the boat at my location for the winter season. The dealer in turn will finish up a few repairs, secure boat for winter, and relist for sale himself. I will forward all my contacts from anyone who had interest in the #385 J30.
I must be honest about my experience selling this boat. I have heard comments from "the boat is junk, I'll pay you the scrap value of $2K...to "the boat needs at least $15K in repairs just to get in water"...to the "entire deck needs to be replaced at cost over $12K"...to "the boat just needs some love and it would make a great sailer"...and finaly to "I can't beleive it only sold for $6000....I would have made you much better offer!" There are many more statements I left out.

Some have been here to see boat in person, most have not. 3 different surveyors have reported the honest condition of this boat to be in good overall condition with mostly cosmedic work needed, along with the usual rigging and equipment repairs. I have spoke with at least 50 interested people about this boat, answering every question I could, along with providing the direct number of the survey company. The most serious have been from across the country, which the hauling cost has detered most. I am at a loss at this point in time. But I do understand one thing. Everyone has an opinion and I respect that 100%.

So in closing, for the record, this 1982 J30 #385 is for sale at Affordable Marine Boat Sales, 86 East Main St, Plainville CT 06062 and can be seen by apointment anytime in the future. The engine has been winterized and this week the boat will be cleaned, covered and relisted for sale.

Happy Holidays and good health to all!

You may want to contact the dealer to see if he would like to post a classified ad here next spring. In keeping with forum rules, I'll lock this thread now that the boat is sold.

Congratulations on the sale.
