[Public-list] Alberg 30 v Alberg 35

One summer, while I left "Zevulun" on the hard to do some work, I loan 
my dock to a friend who had an Alberg 35.  I sailed it often and would 
make these comments.  The 35 is much more boat.  It is smoother to 
sail, has more room for living and sails faster.  However, when I 
got "Zevulun" back on the water, I realized that the 30's are much 
more fun to sail, are much easier to sail, and so, I sailed much 
more.  If you are going to live on a boat, or go sail around the 
world, if comfort is primary importance, by all means, go for the 35.  
If the fun and excitement of sailing is what you cherish, and you like 
to sail alot, the 30 is much better.  As far as price.  It was my 
impression by talking to people that the 35's don't sell for that much 
more.  My friend paid only $500 more for his boat in similar shape.  
Just my 2 cents worth.
