Salty, I don't want to be as blunt as Alex, but it sounds like you are in the situation you're in because you inherited the boat rather than because you had an interest in sailing.
Fixing up a neglected boat is a difficult enough prospect for someone who is motivated. It's just a form of torture for someone who isn't.

I like the idea of Craigs List. Sell her and pick up something small and ready to go.
You can always move up later if you fall in love with it.

I have seen a lot of people get totally turned off of sailing when they thought they were getting a "good deal" on a boat and then became boatbuilders instead of sailors.
