Shared Watch and Good News

You must not be counting the Gulf of Mexico otherwise you would know that I until yesterday owned the finest Alberg 37 in the sea! I sold her yesterday to my neighbor. I do agree with you though these are amazing sailing boats in light, medium or heavy air. You simply need the right gears for the winds.

I wanted something a little bigger so purchased an Alden Caravelle. She's 42 LOA and similar in proportions to the A-37.

Why not post a pic of your Alberg for us to see?

Here's mine and the Caravelle below.
And a pretty boat she is. I see that her sistership is for sale. I've been considering A37s. What can you tell me about her?

I flew to Houston and took a look at Good News. Overall a sound boat I believe, though I had to call off the survey. Her condition has deteriorated since the photos were taken and we couldn't agree on a price. A very nice repowering job and some nice deck hardware and race rigging, but I plan on sailing rather than motoring and cruising rather than racing and she'd need considerable work for that. Topsides, interior, bow roller, plumbing, electrical. The costs would take her out of the money. I see there has been a price reduction since I saw her, but I'm looking at another A37 now. Might take another run at her if this deal doesn't come together and the price gets right.
