Alberg 37 or Cape Dory 36

I once did a two week surveying course at Woodenboat School in Brooklin, Maine. Paul Coble, the designer of the Pearson Ariel or Triton - can''t remember - but the design is always incorrectly attributed to Alberg - made a rather cryptic comment about Cape Dorys as we inspected a 40. Something about serious thinning of glass layup as you move up the hull. He was very leery, to my surprise, of CD construction....
