Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

The 27 would definitely fit. That's the same engine I have in Auriga. Beta and Universal both use the Kubota D1005. I have plenty of space in the engine room to work. From the picture it looks like...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

Auriga has an aluminum boom from Metalmast. I'm not sure if it was a retrofit or came from Pearson. I have an old Simpson Lawrence manual vertical windless and about 200' of chain. I usually pull it...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

+1 for Kiwigrip. Went on quite easily and seems pretty durable after one season. Looks great too and better footing than any molded non-skid I've seen. On Auriga, the original molded non-skid had...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

I agree. She doesn't pound at all. I'll go bow into a big wake sometimes and expect to get tossed around like a rag doll. She just splits the wake like it's nothing. Same in following seas. The waves...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

Ah, that asking price and what you're thinking of offering seem more realistic. I was looking at the price on Yachtworld. If you can get her for the low end of what you're thinking, then I think I...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

LOL. I think that helm chair was the first thing in the dumpster, along with the incredibly sketchy lpg system. I refinished the deck and cockpit last spring. I still need to sort out the sitting...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

Forgot to mention....make sure to look at the rudder. If it's the original mahogany rudder, there is a good chance it will need attention or replacement. Mine was so punky and rotten, I could pull 6...

Re: Looking at a Alberg 35

Looks like a nice boat but the asking price is exceptionally high. Sounds like the owner is trying to recoup the costs of the re-power. I bought my A35 three years ago (1962 Hull# 54 - Auriga) and...

Any chance I could get a copy of the manual by email? I just picked up one of these units and it would be great to know how it works before installing.

So we got it fixed today. The mechanic came over and checked the filter first. He put on a new Fram PH-3593-A, the same filter I had tried three of. It is the filter that supposedly cross references...

Yeah, I have a feeling that something is blocking the pickup tube or screen. Dropping the pan in my boat is a bit of a production in this boat. The engine has to be hoisted up to get to the bottom....

No oil pressure after oil change

Have a strange issue with my M25XPB. First of all, the boat/engine are new to me and the boat has sat in dry storage for about two years. I had the diesel tank cleaned out and filled with fresh...

I considered doing that but there's no real way to get down into that part of the bilge from the cabin to do the install.

How to Fill Hole in Bilge

In a fit of desperation, I drilled a ~3/4" drain hole near the bottom of my bilge over the winter. The boat is an Alberg 35' so the hull is quite thick in this area (>1"). I'm wondering if I can just...

I also own a P26 and the "crack" in the keel/hull joint is very normal for this boat. I have it every year at haulout. Quite surprised you've never seen it before. What you need to do is torque your...

Acrylic Retailer in the NYC Area

I'm getting ready to replace the old yellowed, crazed ports in my Alberg 35 and I'm having a hard time finding a local acrylic retailer. Anyone know of a source around NYC?
