Albin 28 TE

Have a specific question.
Looking at an Albin 28 without an anchor windlass.
How accessible is the anchor locker? will need some working room to install it and concern about room to install the thru deck bolts.
Thanks

No specifics, but looks like a Lewmar works.

windlass

right
more likely
installed one on my Cape Dory couple years ago and the only issue is how much room is there inside the locked to tighten up the thru bolts, otherwise is a very simple job (as simple is to work in tight spaces)

I have no personal experience with them, but in a recent thread here someone said they are cored below the waterline. Check the hull carefully before you buy it just in case. Good luck.

Huge chain lockers on the Albin 28TE, also plenty of working room to run cables and install a windlass.

I am using a Rocna 15kg and 110' 1/4" High Test Chain, G4.
Nice combination for my use, but there is room for another 200-300' 1/2" nylon if needed.
(I cruise shallow waters in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, never anchor in more than 10' of water)

Lewmar 700 Profish, but when it dies I may get the 1000, should be the same footprint and cables..

thank you so much, been unable to figure out the set-up
Just to make sure I understand
these chain lockers are accessed by way of the hatches ON DECK, both sides of the pulpit?

Thatís a lot of anchor for that boat. You will sleep well on that. I have the same but only 25í chain. It has never failed to hold and I have had 110,000 lb of boats on it

Lots of storage in the chain locker, on my 2001 Albin 28TE.
Probably the same on your 1994, but not 100% sure..

I have a 2005 Albin 28 Tournament Express with GenSet and AC.

The chain locker has two hatches. One on either side of the windlass. We carry 300 foot of line with 20 feet of chain. Room for much more. We use the Mantus 25 lb anchor with weighted tip that sets within its own length.

I got out the original brochure for these boats and sure enough, they came with the two hatches to access the chain locker, but not necessarily a windless.

We have a F850A In Shore Windlass Package (Boats 24′ -33′) from https://www.goodwindlass.com/ They provide the anchor rode that is color marked (stained) for easy identification of length.

Albin built about 1,000 of the 28s. They have the Hunt all weather hull design patterned after the north sea patrol boats. They built the Albin in RI and marketed it as a "fishing machine for the cruising family." Stories online where these boats performed well in 24 foot seas. People, not so much. They can take the big wakes on the beam and barely notice it. They range in length from 26 ft. to 45 feet - all look the same.

Shouldn't be too hard to find one to pattern your install after. If you were in the Cape Coral Florida area, you can use ours to measure what you need.

You can see our boat (teal hull) on yachtworld.com

thank you very much for this information, most helpful.
Believe have seen your "Teal Hull" on the web, not sure how.
The boat was interested eventually did not travel to see it, involved a 10 hours drive round trip and just have a feeling needed more work that I am willing/able to do.
This past 2018 marked my last project boat and must come to terms that cannot longer do it.
Even a smaller project like adding a windlass and an autopilot that not long ago will not even think twice is now a never-ending ordeal.
