We have a number of A29's up here; in general, they are heavier, have much
straighter shears, uniformly sized ports, shorter counters with transoms
that are more vertical that the '30.  Their rudders are squareish in
profile, they are slightly beamier, they were fitted with Cinkel white
enameled masts - good sticks but heavier looking than ours.  Also, they
usually cost two to three times what a decent A30 does.  They were built by
Allan Nye-Scott, the same fellow who built the Alberg 22.  He was a very
good builder, but I am not so fond of that design.  And of course a
reasonably well sailed A30 will go rings around the A29.
