Greetings, go to the Alberg 30 Owners Assn group. Excellent source.
Having owned an A30 for many years, I can tell you that in 69-70 Whitby changed to a liner type construction process. Prior to that stick built.
Main areas of concern are the mast
support beams. Over time the glues failed, allowing the laminated deck
support beam to sag. If your forward cabin
door won't close or is missing, then this is probably the case. The association site has detailed the repair and sourced aluminum
repair plates. Washington Aluminum
Also check forward lower shroud
chainplates. There have been problems with undersized bolts-easy fix. The A30 is a cousin to Albergs CD 30, although it has iron ballast and is slightly narrower. Opening ports
were an option.
All in all a great boat with an amazing record
