I just bought a Holder 20 sight unseen for ~2k ready to go with sails, trailer, motor, and all the other goodies.  I'm pumped to see her in person!

I think this would be a badass project for $3500: https://seattle.crai...5430359388.html

Harbor 20 for 2k: 






"WD Schock harbor 20 daysailer
This is the ideal daysailer! Boat needs some serious clean up but is structurally sound,
It's been moored on a buoy in Quartermaster Harbor on Vashon island for about 10 years,ever since I had a stroke which left me disabled and unable to sail again, or maintain the boat. Needs some major pressure washing and cleanup, as Pigeons have made their home under the cockpit boom cover.
More info about condition of boat is available upon request.Electric motor had some water damage and most likely needs replacing. . .
..with some cleanup, this project boat could be a fantastic daysailer!

A few specs:

Original features:

• They're ideal single-handed daysailers- racing class with ample room for 2-3 persons in cockpit 
• Roller-Furling Jibsail
• self-Tacking Jibsail(on a pivoting Jib boom)
• all lines and sheets can be accessed/handled from a convenient dashboard at the front of the open cockpit
• small electric motor stows in transom hatch compartment aft of cockpit 
• electric motor swings out of transom hatch on a shaft over gunwale to motor from/to buoy, berth or dock. 
Electric motor is powered by a simple car battery in the bow 
• original keel had special copper paint/coating to minimize vegetation and barnacle growth. 
• it has a small cockpit table accessory
•Schock still makes the harbor 20 and all parts and accessories including various sails,parts, and trailers. 
• since it is an official Racing Class,there are active clubs across the U.S."


Sounds like a lot of work, but could be worth it seeing how much these boats normally sell for.
