You should have no problem selling your boat at that price.  I hope you find a buyer who will appreciate all you have done.  My past experience has shown that many, if not most, boat buyers are ignorant.  I sold my Columbia 26 MKII for $2700 which was far below the average price of $4000.  It was in very good condition and had an almost new 9.8 electric start motor.  I felt I had my monies worth after 38 years.  After 4 years and three other owners it sold for $2950 and it was a total wreck with no motor.  I would only pay about $1000 for a boat in that condition.  The buyer had never owned a boat and obviously never checked the price of a similar boat.  Sorry for the rant but I hope you guys do your homework before buying or selling a boat.

 Hey All,

The wife and I are moving on up to a 38-40 footer.  Most likely a C&C landfall 38, a Cal 39, or an Ericson 38 if we can find one that fits our budget.  Our max budget is about 30k - so, I am looking for a boat that needs tlc, but has good bones that I can fix and restore like I did my C&C 30.  

Rob, I'm sorry to post about another 30 for sale when I saw you just posted yours, but I believe your boat is a mkii, and it's a much later model, so I don't think we're after the same buyers... That said, we may be looking to buy the same boats... ;)

My 1976 C&C 30 has been lovingly restored, with the below list of upgrades - many of which I posted about on here.  I have her listed on Craigslist for $8450 - I know that's cheap.  This is why - Her interior was renovated (very nicely) by a previous owner and she has newer Lexan portlights (just re-bedded and re-sealed this spring), so she won't fetch as much as a totally original looking 30, but she needs absolutely nothing to go right now..  We love her huge galley.  We sail her regularly on weekends.  She's a great boat - stiff as all heck and she handles the ocean passage from Brooklyn to NJ great.
She's at a marina (paid thru Dec) in Island Heights, NJ.  If she doesn't sell by Sept 24th I'll be sailing her back to Brooklyn where she will be at the Sheepshead Bay Yacht club.  
I'll be at the boat this Saturday preparing her for Hermine if anyone would like to see her.
