John,
There is a lady that has an Albin 25 far out on the right end of the right float going down the ramp on the east side of the north harbor. There's an old green tug under the covered part of that float (don't remember the letter #). Do you remember this Tug? ... The Maggie B ?

Albin

Yes that is the correct road --I remember the green tug------- the Albin I was looking at is just beyond the covered slips on the right--- probably the same boat ------ John Norberg is the fellow who has it for sale.....it has a partially deflated dingy on the cabin........... ..... also if you are coming over to Pender check out corbetthousecountryinn.com ..........that's us !!

Lucy,
Look in the upper right hand corner of this page your look'in at. See ( Quick Links ) .. right above that see ( Private Messages ).
Or click on someone's username like ( manyboats ) (me) and on the left side of the page see ( see Send Message ) or if you click on a large username click on ( see profile ) or ( send (so and so) a msg ).

I figured most of that out in 2007 when I started this forum stuff.

May be another Albin as the one I was talking about was owned by a woman.

There is an active Albin group on yahoo with searchable archives. I'm still a member as I was looking for an Albin 27 for a while.

You will have to join the forum to see pictures and older posts, I think, but it's free.
If you already have been there ignore this.

I'm a little sad!!!!!

Checked out the La Conner Albin the other day and although it seemed mechanically great -cosmetically it was lacking ------ they had modified the aft cabin and eliminated the "tunnel" in which ones legs would be when sleeping.......I think this was done to provide a standing area for fishing.....It did take away from the "authenticity" of the boat..........and after figuring the added cost of duties.re-registering..etc. etc....... $$ ....... Any Canadian registered Albins out there that have been re-powered -- on trailers -- and have been looked after for 20k or less let me know............thanks for all of your input ....... I do think that the Albin 25 is the boat for me .... to find the right one is the challenge............there is one in Sidney BUT it has a full "roof" which won't work for us...........picky!!!!!! but why not-----it is only a toy!!!! john

Sigh...

We can only afford one boat, but if we could afford two an Allweather would be at the top of the list!

ahhhh haaaa !!!

The search light has just spotted a vessel in the water ....... all I've heard and seen re. the Allweather has been positive ... so what is it that makes the Allweather soooooo desirable?????? If one buys a boat from afar how does one transport said boat across several States without driving the price up to $80,000 .................. I've figured out how to make a "private contact" Now how the heck do you include a "quote" and or partial quote stay dry and warm john

Turns out we went for a bigger, beamier boat in the end, but there was a time I would have dropped everything for an Allweather!

Murray – Not to mention the exceptionally seaworthy hull (her bow height and prow flare are simply beautiful) and sleek superstructure design and sheer utilitarian layout of Allweather Boats... the following quote is priceless; imagine the range at slow cruise if needed! Thanks for providing that link. I hope the tradition can be carried on! – Art

“Basically we have shrunk a much larger boat into a trailerable vessel that you can afford to operate for a pittance compared to other types of rigs. No wound up screaming engines. Just that ultra reliable little diesel ticking away at some 12 to 20 nautical miles per gallon.”
