Yes, I am still in Hampton VA, sailing mostly in Hampton Roads Harbor With occasional ventures into Chesapeake Bay, which can be very nasty at times. The harbor is a wonderful place to day sail almost always. You have Hull no. 15! mine is no. 74. At one time there were 5 P22's here. I think the highest no.here was 110 and they didn't build but a very few more than that. Did I mention that I bought mine new in 1969. How has your boat held up? Is there much that needs to be fixed or replaced? I sold my P22 in 1987 and bought a P30 like your friend did, In 1997 I found the boat in Elizabeth City N.C. My offer to buy it was turned down but in 2000 the owner called to say they were ready to let go. How much I asked? Come get it and you can have it, they said! I had a trailer built and brought it home. It needed much work. In2008 it (Aquarius) finally was launched and has proved to be the wonderful boat it was in the 70's. I need to sell the P30. Roy
