Re: Cape Dory 30 - How slow is "slow?"

I have an Alberg 30. I have both Asy Spin and drifter and use the drifter quite a bit, with 5-7kts of wind my Alberg will get up to 3-3.5kts depending on point of sail and sea state when flying the drifter. Your Cape Dory 30 may not be that fastest but she will be steady when the going gets rough and easy to repair as older boats tend to be more simple and have better access. I may be off base and a bit biased here but I also feel that if you keep her, in 30 yrs from now she will still be a sought after boat. Good Luck
