I have a 1962 Alberg 35
that has always been named Andiamo.
Great boat, very nice to sail and very pretty.
I wouldn't worry too much about deck core
. It is something you can fix relatively easily and in the meantime it isn't going anywhere. Either top or bottom skin of glass is MUCH thicker than any glass in a modern boat.
Can any of you with Albergs tell me where you found the hull
number? I have searched all over my boat looking for any clues and have found none.
There are no bronze plates or ID plates anywhere on her. Just her documentation
numbers and the info provided on her paperwork.
I am on the southern chesapeake and would happily take anyone who wants to sail an A35 sailing on her.
Haven't spent too much time at anchor
in anything other than pond smooth chesapeake anchorages
, but she doesn't roll. If she does roll she damps out fast.
She has a smooth easy motion while sailing, but does get over to 15-20 degrees and then stays there.
Takes bit of muscle to steer but not overwhelming. Following seas can be a handful, but if you take the time to adjust and balance the sails
she is great.
Living space for 2? I don't see why not. We gunkholed with the kids
with 5 aboard....snug!!!
2 would seem great...now if I can just get these kids
