The Goose is gorgeous.

There are quite a few P30's out there, but many of them are languishing. Take lots of pictures while you can, folks.

Looks like you have a lot of work into it already. Restored mine after sitting for 16 yrs. Still remodeling the interior now. Had some of same issues you have with rot. Stick with it, it'll be worth it when it's done.

I'm docked at Boat World Marina on the Maurice River in Leesburg. Let me know what day you'll be around the Cape. If i'm not working mabe we can get together. That's one trip I'm gonna make, mabe next year. Boat will be better equipped. Have a good and safe trip. If you run into trouble in the Delaware bay or river you can give me a call. If you want E-mail me at and I can give you a number for emergency (or beer run!). GW

Where in southern Jersey are you?
I'll be sailing around Delmarva with a probable stop in Cape May, in August.

Thanks Bubblehead, my wife actually picked the deck color. She's actually been working right along side me with this restoration. Nice to know there are some still on the water, so many rotting away in marinas and backyards. Wish I had the resources to restore more of them. GW and hope your enjoying the season.

Love the gray non-skid. Very classy.

I can tell you that the P30 fleet on the Chesapeake is alive and well. The P30 racing class was quite vibrant until it fell apart around 2001 or so. Costs drove people to downsize to smaller boats where it's cheaper to buy expensive go-fast parts like laminate sails, and you can get by with much fewer crew.

There are at least 4 P30's in the West/Rhode River environs.
At least one in the South River.
2 on the Severn River at EYC.
1 on the Magothy River, that races. Heyday took 2nd place in last year's Gov Cup.
1 in Baltimore Harbor.

Those are only the ones I know of. There are more, I'm sure.
