Re: How many P-30's still on the water?
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.
