cape dory 30

I beg to differ with all those who say the Cape Dory is the way to go. I shopped for a Cape Dory for quite some time. I ended up with what I feel is a better boat. I bought an Alberg 29. She is 29''3" Beam 9''6" and she has a lot more interior room than a Dory. Sloop rigged with roller furling headsail, Wheel, and has a 2GM Yanmar Diesel. She points very well and has taken me through some very bad weather without a drop going below. The 29 isn''t to common but her big sister the Alberg 30 was made in more numbers. Have a look for Alberg 30 and see what you can find. Same designer as the Cape Dory but since she doesnt have the Dory name she is a lot less money. Built in every way just as good. BTW I bet I could sail circles arond a Dory rigged with a club footed jib.
