Without knowing real condition, hard to say, but I think you passed it by? $900 for a decent cape dory that needs little stuff is not bad, but storage can be a killer. Sweat equity is cheap, and someone really clever can do a lot for little $.
Good luck finding a project. I think others have taken on some trashed out boats that would make that cape dory look like cream puff.
