    I am looking for a boat 30' or just under this length within 120 miles of of Holland, MI. I would prefer to have only a single mast and sail, but if there is a nice JR schooner available right around the corner from me I will certainly consider the opportunity!

    If anyone is aware of any leads please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Scott, are you willing to think about doing a conversion, or do you know you want to find one ready to go?  I have found a Bristol and a Bayfield that I think might warrant consideration, and I am looking for others with similar characteristics to those 2. 

    Regardless I am on the hunt as well and will subscribe to this post.

    Hi Bob,

    (Edit: Oops. Sorry that you missed out on the Eastward Ho).

    I would like to find something that is already properly converted or that was originally designed for a junk rig. I fully expect that this will never happen, but I thought I should post and see what happens.

    Getting a low price on a boat with a perfect condition interior and a missing or broken rig would make me feel a lot more comfortable with buying a boat just to convert her over to a junk rig.

    Please -- send links to any boats up this way that are for sale and are in your opinion a good choice to convert.
