Alden 44 Hull Construction

I know that Alden 44's are balsa cored, but does anyone know if they are cored below the waterline?

I've read plenty of specifications but they don't give detailed information on what you want. Maybe you'll have to PM an owner?

Re: Alden 44 Hull Construction

According to Sailing Magazine:ĒThe boatís fiberglass hull is vacuum bagged with a balsa core. The decks are similarly constructed as a sandwich of fiberglass and lightweight woods.Ē

Don’t know definitively about the 44 but our Alden is solid below the WL. Don’t think that varies between the models.

Re: Alden 44 Hull Construction

Thanks for the info. I emailed the builder and asked if they still have archived information regarding the 44. They reached out to one of the retired workers from that era and he confirmed the entire hull to s vacuum bagged balsa cored.
