Alberg 30 Odyssey... Info Needed
We might have the opportunity to purchase an Alberg 30 Odyssey, and were hoping to get some expert opinions (that means you, Sailnet forumites) on the pros and cons of this boat. Be reminded that the "Odyssey" is different from the more common Alberg 30. The brief history we've found (we've already done all the google searching), is that the Odyssey was actually built to Carl Alberg's original design specs and scantlings, as opposed to the Alberg 30 which were altered by the manufacturer to cut costs. Main differences we've come across so far are that the displacement is about 1000 lbs greater in the Odyssey, it has external lead ballast as opposed to internal iron, and has a flat coachroof, as opposed to stepped. Any firsthand experience, secondhand legends, rumors and/or hearsay would be much appreciated. thanks
