[QUOTE=Maine Sail;409727]Unfortunately you don't "buy" a boat like that you take it off someones hands for FREE!
Even if you get it for free it will cost you in multiples of what the same vessel in pristine condition will cost you.
Based on the above description you're looking at a 25-45k boat by the time you're done..QUOTE]

Truer words were never spoken, though I think you would be lucky to get 25k if you got her into mint condition. The Tartan 30 is almost identical to the Yankee 30 of which I own Hull 18. Great boats. You could check out Yankee owner sites for ideas if Tartan sites don't have much info. However, unless this is an absolute labor of love and you are very skilled, I would look elsewhere.
