I like it.
I'm not ever going to own a boat with that much bright finish on it, ever again; but to my eye it's pretty. Could be prettier, a little more spoon in the bow and a little less "dish" to the cabin trunk..
Now looks ok to me. Cabin trunk is fugly. Lots of other details that I’m not a fan of 🤷🏻‍♂️.

J/22 on Coopers. It was close to that Portsmouth RI boatyard fire.

How does fiberglass respond to being “warmed”?

The glass itself is fine. It is fire resistant and won't burn.

It's the resin that may not enjoy it so much. But it is a thermoset plastic, so unless it is charred or similarly damaged - it should be fine AFAIK. The only potential issue I can see may be thermal expansion of the glass.

But then again, I'm not a chemical engineer.

Unless one has replacement rigging/spars/sails sitting around in storage just looking for a boat - the boat is worth nothing.

Judging by the local ads that attitude of "old boats are worth nothing" is changing.

I assume you meant to use purple font. The used market is crazy - but not that crazy,

20 grand and the compass is leaking???
And that red and white main just screams hi-tech....

And the Ericson 30 is even worse...ok, you put some new electronics on it, and some truly horrible new cushion covers...wow....

That fancy trailer might have cost $20k to build but I dunno about it fetching that on the 2nd hand market.
