LOL. I think that helm chair was the first thing in the dumpster, along with the incredibly sketchy lpg system. I refinished the deck and cockpit last spring. I still need to sort out the sitting situation as well.
$20,000 in refit costs is about what I'm looking at in the end. I've probably got about $15,000 in at the moment and still plan to get some electronics. 100% my labor. That was my point about the asking price. If you spend $18,000 on the initial purchase and spend another $20,000 on a refit, you end up with a nearly $40,000 Alberg 35. You could buy another well outfitted cruiser for much less. There is a recently refitted and very well outfitted Alberg 35 for sell on Cruiser's Forum for $23,500: For Sale: Alberg 35, fully equipped! $23,500 obo - Cruisers & Sailing Forums
