You would not go wrong getting a larger boat and having it on the river. I had a hunter 23 and sold in less then a year and then I bought it a 30 ft Oday. only bridge needs to be opened for boats with masts higher then 46ft.
Rick, From Philly to the C&D and either bay is not all that far for a weekend. I don't love the river for sailing all that much either but my YC in Bristol where I live is less then 10mins from my boat. There are lots of sailing activities on the river if you seek them out.
You may pay more for a boat that is being offered by a broker. I'd suggest boats for sale by owners.
Your buddies boat in his yard?? that's a shame!
good luck boat hunting!
