Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise
Alberg 30s, 37s, and Whitby 42s and a few others were built by Whitby Boat Works right across the harbour from my yacht club on Lake Ontario. Solidly built in general but not as good as Cape Dory - but cheaper. I would look for a later A30 but not one of the very last ones. I heard they were cutting corners trying to stay alive. Mainly Atomic 4 engines, but many would have replacements by now.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
