Albin Ballad 30

I''m seriously considering the purchase of a 1974 Albin Ballad I''ve discovered for sale close to home. I''m looking for a good boat for eventual budget-oriented long distance cruising, and the Ballad has an apparantly good reputation as a blue water boat.

The price is just right. The sales will need replacing before I venture too far, but I have a few more years of building a kitty anyway. I''m assuming the standing rigging might also need replacing, for prudence'' sake if nothing else. Considering these things, does any one know what a good price might be for this vessel?

And if anyone has a Ballad of this vintage, I would appreciate any reviews or stroies you''d care to share.

Thanks!
