I think there are a lot of boats available that would do what you want to do. I agree with Jeff to a certain extent but there were both well built boats in the past just like there are now. One thing to look for in the basic construction is bulkheads that were solidly glassed in to the hull and not just bolted to the liner. This gives a much stronger structure with less hull twisting and movement. This also eliminates the early Catalina 30. I'd look at the Yankee 30, Allied, Alberg, CS, Seafarer, Tartan, Bristol, Ericson, Albin and Cape Dory as possibles.
