From PHRF New England - Handicapping - Base Handicaps , the 30 rates 171 and the 3000 162. I would expect these numbers to reasonably reflect the performance differences in the boats, which is to say "not much". The T30 is a special classic, while the 3000 is also a nice boat, if you feel comfortable with the premium it requires.

FWIW given the T30's position of prominence as perhaps the best of the '70s racer/cruiser, many have been cherished by knowledgeable owners who have taken very good care of them. Not that you can't find plenty of dogs...but I have seen a number of T30s that are doubtlessly in better shape now than when brand new, and perhaps represent better buys than most new builds, at perhaps 25% of a new boat's price. Zpretty hard to beat, if you can get past the mirage that a good buy in a boat means a cheap purchase price.
