The P 35 is a GREAT boat. They have a cult following, and there are people out there that specifically look for them. In bristol condition, she could be worth ~$35K (although you could easily spend $45K getting her there)
This one IS a project. There are a lot of variables to take into account (engine, transmission, hull, decks, running rigging, winches, all the standing rigging will have to be redone to suit what ever mast you find, sails, etc.)
Here is my FREE advice - and the advice may be worth less than you paid for it:
If the guy is offering it to you for free, and you have the time and some skill - I'd take it. It would be a great learning experience.
If he is planning to charge you over $2K, - I would tell him "enjoy your boat mister."
Anything between $0 and $2K is a roll of the dice.
