Here is a $4000 31' boat ready to sail:

Golden Hind 31 Foresale

Says it just needs cosmetic things done and has crossed the Atlantic 4 times.
NFI, just saw it browsing.
That ad will likely go away soon, so here is the text:

Golden Hind 31 Foresale - $4000 (Wilmington)

This is a true bluewater boat. Golden Hinds once held the record for the most ocean crossings of a single type. This boat has made three Atlantic crossings itself. Built in Portsmouth England by Terry Erskine Yachts in 1969. The hull is made of mahogany and plywood and then glassed. She is the best sailing boat I have ever sailed a real pleasure. They say she sleeps 5 that would be very cosy but could be done. I would say its more like 4.

This boat is in good mechanical condition ready to sail but she needs a lot of TLC. There are some minor soft spots on the deck under the life lines these need to be removed and fixed. The boat needs to be repainted. Bottom paint was done in 2006. Cabin needs paint and cushions It has all the old cushions and they are still useable but are dated. Excelent restoration project for someone who wants something they can sail and restore at the same time. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history. The TLC this boat needs is cosmetic not structural. You can take this boat sailing right now no work required. Sail her this summer and restore her this fall.
