Hi, Bruce,

Just "hiring it done" is no way to save money, and in many cases does 
not get you the craftsmanship you seek.  But you're in luck that you're 
so close to a lot of Alberg 30 owners who are happy to provide advice 
based on their own experiences.  And it's important to have that 
know-how for the eventual breakdown on the water.

The first step is to get the boat so you can sail it.  That makes 
working on the cosmetics all the more enjoyable.  Plus you can raft up 
with other A30s and compare notes.

What projects does your boat need?
