An Alberg beyond hope? Not necessarily!

One of the most important benefits realized by the members of the Great Lakes Alberg Association is the access to the vast knowledge base of the membership. This is especially important as many of the boats in our fleet reach middle age or older. Some owners have completed major repairs and restorations to their boats and this experience is shared freely with other Alberg skippers. Some have documented their efforts and downloads are available below.

While technical and repair articles are published from time to time in our newsletter, much information is passed on in person during our many events during the year. This kind of hands-on and practical experience can't be overrated and isn't found in how-to manuals that cover boats of all types. This page is designed as a way to share some of this acquired wisdom.

GLAA Members can also purchase the Association's 25th Anniversary Booklet--aka "The Manual"-- which contains schematics and drawings for many Alberg 30 systems. Visit the Marketplace to purchase a copy.
