Basic Information

For those who are new Allmand sailboat owners (as I am at the time I'm posting this), finding information on Allmands can be difficult. I've found two resources that could be useful to new owners:

* Allmand Sail Dedicated to bringing Allmand owners together has some information, including original sales brochures, for the 31 and 35. Unfortunately, many of the pages/links are significantly outdated and/or don't work, but it is still a good resource.

* https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/Allmand is a Google Group dedicated to Allmand owners. It doesn't see a lot of traffic, though. The files section there also has some good information on the boats, but it can be difficult to find.

Re: Basic Information

Thanks for the leads Jim; I'm trying to find out how to identify if a 1981 Allmand 31 I'm looking at has a lead or cast iron ballast. I have a Clipper Marine 30, CM30 and just finished refairing the cast Iron keel. I don't ever want to do another so I'm a little concerned about what is inside the fiberglass skin.

Re: Basic Information

I believe they are encapsulated cast iron. See, for example, this thread:

Re: Basic Information

Jimgo;

Do you ever sail down to the Chesapeake? It would be nice to have a Allmand reunion in the spring on the east coast. Any ideas of when and where. I hope to head to the islands in March.
