Had a Cape Dory Typhoon 19 ft weekender. Loved it. No one improves on a Carl Alberg design. None more beautiful.

Re: To Alberg or not to Alberg

my seasprite 23 was designed by Alberg. It is a great little boat that is very "sea kindly" but not very fast. It could also be considered a "wet" boat due to it's low topsides and propensity for burying the rail.

Here is a list of 47 known Alberg designs:

Re: To Alberg or not to Alberg

We lived aboard an Alberg 30 for 9 years and sailed her extensively on the West coast from the Queeen Charlottes to Mexico. We made many changes in that time but would never consider messing with the underbody. No need, Carl Alberg nailed it. She performed just fine on all points of sail and in all kinds of weather...from light surfing @ 9.5 kits with the Navik wind vane steering like a champ.

All Albergs can be drastically improved, by pulling that rudder off the keel, and replacing it with a skeg hung rudder much further aft.

To Alberg or not to Alberg

Im a green horn sailer looking to buy a classic daysailer. I love the large cockpit of the Pearson Commander and the classic lines of the Ensign.

My goals are:
Stable boat when it blows
Large cockpit
As much head room as possible for the head (port-a-poty)
LOA 28 max
Beam 9 Max (due to current slip)
Classic look
Inboard if possible
Daysailor weekender

All comments are welcome.
