Pros:
Cons:

In general this is an excellent design. Most importantly it is fun to sail. It is very well balanced and unlike many boats sails well with just the mainsail. I race it in Barnegat Bay and it has been a consistently top performer in our PHRF series. Like all boats its sailing characteristics can be improved by centering its off-center backstay and upgrading the traveler. You can also increase the windward performance for the shoal draft model by fairing the keel. This includes rounding the entry and increasing the width according to modern keel hydrodynamic specifications. I have had a number of sailboats and this one is most fun to sail.

Pros:
Cons:

Perfect layout for a comfortable, single handed 30 foot sailboat. Handles light winds well, shoal draft is a plus in Chesapeake. Cabin layout is surprisingly roomy for 4 people to travel. Classic lines, quality construction make it a boat others compliment. Sails well with just main or genoa. PHRF of 198 and D/L of 245 support the boats desire to operate in 10-20 knot winds. Cockpit is comfortable for 4 crowded with 6. Overall a great boat and a strong design in a 30 foot hull.

Pros: Easy to single-hand. Comfortable layout below.
Cons: Cockpit layout could be better

The Lippincott 30 is IMHO a great mid-range boat. It is very spacious below for a 30' boat. It has all the features of bigger boats. Hot and cold pressure water for showers, the foward head, and galley area. The water and electrical systems are laid out so you don't need an engineering degree to maintain them. Aux power is adaquite. The Yanmar 2QM15 engine is a work horse. Mine is 26 years old and still runs like a top with minimal maintance. She sails well in light air and handles well when reefed down as necessary to deal with heavier air. The construction seems to be above average for boats of this class.

Pros: easy single handed sailing, roomy interior
Cons:

This is a great boat for south Florida since it has a shallow draft. It is surprisingly fast, stable and a good pointer. I have had mine for several years and it has been a solid and safe vessel.

Pros:
Cons:

I am looking at a used 1985 boat. Hull, engine and rigging in excellent condition. Sails unknown but by report good. Interior looks 25 years old with cabin roof lining badly deteriorated and needs replacing. Floor stained and cushion covers etc old. Asking price is $14000 I am looking for first time crusing boat for narragansett bay and the local island (Block, Marthas Vineyard and Nantucket) and have some questions.
1. Do you recommend this boat for the purposes I have described
2. Is replacing the roof lining a huge job.
3. What are the negative and positive sailing characteristics of this boat

Many thanks for your replies and advice.
JM
