I should have something fancy, here, but I don't. Not yet, at least. But the
process is easy:
- Buy an Alberg 30. You can't join the Association without it. (But we can
still be friends.)
- Get the Alberg 30 Association application form by sending an email to
We'll get back to you with the application form.
- Fill out the application and mail it in with your check, made
out to "Alberg 30 Association." Note: The maintenance manual
is back in print.

This Old Boat
by Don Casey
Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a
first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best
introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner
of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines
for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and
deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical,
plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this
is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced.
This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it
fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too.
I still refer to it.
