Re: Alburg 30 questions

Gotta disagree on the chainplate/chainplate bolts - they do appear original, there are only three @ 5/16th or even 1/4" maybe, and they are undersized. They will need replacing as will the chainplates in all likelihood.

FWIW, My (ex) A-30 did not look like that at the hull to deck as viewed from the inside. Mine was sealed solid with heavy roving that appeared to be factory. I had an early hull# though, and that might make a difference. I'd glass up what you see there on that boat for a nice clean finish and added strength.
