Sailed on one in the Caribbean in the early '70s. A lovely boat, great lines, nice interior. My recollection is that she was a good sailor on a reach but tended to hobbyhorse close hauled in a moderate headsea. Also - but you know this - that's a lot of bright work to maintain in the Bahama and Caribbean sunlight. In comparison to the B40s on which I've sailed, the Alden seemed quicker. Also - I suspect that on a comparable boat for boat basis, the Alden would be better value for your purchase dollars. (also true on your sale date - but you've got less money into the adventure...so you can pay for maintenance, upgrades and fun boat stuff.
