How tough is an Alberg 29

Just wondering if an Alberg 29 is just as tough as its Cape Dory brothers. Can it handle serious of shore sailing? Not much info on these little boats out there.

It's an Alberg. he didn't design limp boats. If you are expecting accomodations similar to a modern production boat, forget it- it is a narrow, comparatively spartan boat, but it is a boat that has a solid following, allegedly decent seakindliness, and gets decent reviews.
