Alden 44 owners

Are there any Alden 44 owners on sailnet? I'd love to get a discussion group going for these boats.

Thanks, but "orphan boats" seems to be an orphan forum. I.e. not much traffic.

One of the 44's has been closed on and the other is having some last minute work done on her.

Frank:

We own hull 24, my sister bought 37 and we have met the owners of 10, 11 and 19. 19, Juno, is now sailing around the Greek Isles, I believe. Someday Came is about to be splashed.

Hi Allan. Terrific to hear from you - and that you are in touch with others (let alone 2 in one family!)
My boat is currently called 'Second Wind' previously it had the names 'Goodness' and originally was Jeremiah. I will be renaming her "Louisianna".
I bought her last summer in Florida and sailed her offshore to NYC and up the Hudson and Erie Canals to Lake Ontario. (Toronto area).
Plan is to keep her here close to home for a number of years before heading out again.
She is hull number 25 and according to Neils Helleberg design number 1036Z.
Sounds like yours and mine may have spent some time together in '82 & '83 as they were likely both under construction at the same time...

Alden 44

Did a discussion board for Alden 44 owners ever get started? We are shopping for a family boat and this one is high on our list. I wonder if there are specific things to look for, esp in the earlier boats. Questions that I can think of are: did Alden ever run into problems with their resins in the early 80's like Valliant did and are their high cost repairs these boats might be needing that I might not think about (excluding obvious things like hours on the engine and age of the rigging). One post suggested contacting Bill Seifert. Does anyone know contact information for him"
Thanks

New to this site
We have recently become owners of Cariad, I believe hull number 21. Although we live in the Maritimes, the boat, now named Robert Clyde, is on the west coast, BC. Built 1982-3 and well maintained by her previous and only owner. It is a delight to sail, and we are making minor repairs as they become necessary. There were some cosmetic blisters on the hull,below water line, these were repaired prior to our purchase.
Bill Siefert is the man to contact about this type of boat. First, read his book,Offshore Sailing, even if you think you know it all, this will open your eyes to many great ideas. He is glad to help and answers my questions quickly. He runs a consulting business with regards to sailing and his advice is worth the cost.
I will keep up some posts as we get more experience on this lovely boat.
