The Alberg 30 is an excellent boat, and one of my favorite monohulls. It is capable of daysailing, even in fairly light winds, as well as making bluewater passages. Fairly spacious for a boat of that age and size.
I would strongly recommend you get in touch with the Alberg 30 owners association
, as they have a very active one. Also, John Vigor's book, 20 Small Sailboats to Take You Anywhere
includes a section on the Alberg 30.
I would still get a separate survey of the boat done, as the boat is probably close to 30 years old, and should be thoroughly surveyed by an unbiased person.
As for moving the genoa tracks (not traveler) to the deck, that would also give you closer sheeting angles and help you point a bit higher.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
