Notes

During it's long production run, the Alberg 30 was fitted with a number of different engines for auxilary power inluding (in approximate order): Gray Marine Gas 22hp Universal Atomic 4 Gas 30hp Bukh (single cyl) Diesel 12hp Volvo Penta MD7A Diesel Volvo 2002 Diesel Earlier versions of the ALBERG 30 have a laminated wood mast brace and no liner. Decks are masonite cored and drain directly overboard under the toe rail. These boats have an upright icebox accessible from both the cabin and the cockpit. Newer boats have an aluminum mast brace enclosed inside a molded fiberglass liner. Their decks are balsa cored and drain through hoses to the cockpit scupper drains. A molded fiberglass pan forms the cabin sole and the support for the furniture. The icebox is top-loading. There are also a few transition boats that share characteristics of both. More detailed information can be found at the alberg30.org site listed above. Thanks to the author of the aforementioned site, George Dinwiddie, for his assistance with this and other subjects.)
