30'''' Lippincott Sloop

I just purchased a 1980 Lippincott 30 last October and have enjoyed it thus far. It''s my first boat so I''m a bit of a newby, but maintenance has been relatively easy and seems to be well built.

The biggest chore I have left to do is rebed the deck hardware and add some backing plates. The cleats do not have backing plates beyond some small washers and I''d feel better with some actual plates there.

We haven''t had the greatest weather here to go sailing since buying it, but for the little bit of time I''ve spent out on the water with it I''ve had a good time. I''ve been out a few times in very light winds and it moves along fine. In heavier winds it seems to want a reef rather early or you heel a lot. Maybe I''m just not comfortable enough yet.

I motored down from the northern Chesapeake to Oriental, Nc and hit some rather nasty weather in that time. No problems, other than scarying myself a bit, the boat was solid.

The open layout of the cabin with the folding table has been great providing plenty of space.

I''ve enjoyed it so far.
