Re: Alberg 30 Free to a good home in Ohio
That's almost the same as my Bristol 30, which I paid thousands for, and thought I got a steal. Mine was in the water and I was able to motor away from the dock though . . . and it has a running, two-cylinder Yanmar diesel in it, rather than the similar-horsepower Volvo. Does it have any soft spots? how's the tiller? (. . . or does it have a wheel?) It looks like an interesting boat, but I have to say that unless you know what you're doing with that boat, it could end up costing more than it would cost to get a boat like a running, floating Alberg 30 or Bristol 30 (or Bristol 29 or Bristol 29.9). Albergs are legendary boats though, and there aren't many boats that would be more worthwhile spending money and time fixing them up. I'm not saying you'd get all your money back, after spending $20,000 or $30,000 fixing up this one, but if you did that much to it, you'd likely have one hell of a nice, super-seaworthy boat . . . as long as you're careful about what you do to it (and how you do it). If I didn't already need to do a bunch of work to my Bristol 30, I'd seriously consider coming to Ohio and taking that gem off your hands.
