A Yankee 30, abandoned in a boatyard, still restorable and a fine example of a good small voyager. Is it worth the effort to restore or should it go into a dumpster?
Note: AppliedSailing is not representing the boat for sale. It is being used for discussion purposes only. The vessel is appropriate because it has several key features starting with a skeg protected rudder and ending with a good designer and builder pedigree.
The boat is a 1971 Yankee 30. More detailed information is available on line at www.sailboatdata.com

First order of business is to clean the boat.
