Re: Alberg 30 - Yah or Nay!

Chris-N-Cate (frequent posters here) spent a couple hours restoring an A30. They might be able to make some judgments from your pics.

When I started shopping for my first boat last year, I was very interested in an Alberg 30. Very, very interested. I think those are beautiful boats. Looking at your pictures, my first thought was, "Lots of minor cosmetic work to be done." My second thought was, "If the visible, decorative wood was allowed to degrade, what about the stuff I can't see?"

Keeping in mind that I don't know nuttin' about nuttin', my gut feeling is that this is a project boat that might be good for a low-ball offer...if you're interested in a project boat. Maybe show up with $4k in cash, that sort of thing.
