DC sailors Hampton One Design, $$, and college???

I'm looking into buying, or working for, a hampton one design.

i know a bit about this boat.

the group i've been hanging out with at the docks in DC sails 'em, and there really into these boats- kinda a chesapeke heritage thing- the "best on the bay" as they call it.

they're really into keeping the class alive, and the one of the head fellows took me out, and i had a blast.

his friend's selling one- for $1500, but would sell it to me for $1200, with trailer, 1 racing set, 1 practice set, and a dry slip through march on the river.

he would do installments, and really wants to see me get out and become part of the pack. he's moved up, purchasing a newer hampton.

the boat's an "ugly duckling" with a lot of potential, but i've been told by everyone it's a good, solid boat for a college student looking to get into racing. these guy's are all pretty cool, have professional careers, and don't appear to be looking to make a quick buck.

i'm trying to figure out what to do. would the maintanence on an 18ft older fiberglass boat (with a little teak- coamings and what not) be that expensive? i figure that the dry slip would cost me $500 or so for 6 months. should i get a partner? i'm a college student, full time, in DC (expensive city) and just got offered good job- but never seem to have money up until now.

anyone know of anyone looking to split slip fees to use a boat for a year in DC (i wanna maintain ownership)??????

Don't know much about the boat, but do know that it is bad form to post essentially identical threads on the same subject, as you have done with this thread. Please don't do that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
