Default Albury Bros 33

Laminating hull #1. The crew just finished filling the strakes with putty, bedding Corecell in the starboard topsides and glassing a quarter in the keel for good luck ! J

All I've ever read about AB's is that they are boats that will outlast you and your kids.

However, what I've never read, is why? Anyone care to explain? ;?

Beautiful boats, none the less.

Because they are built like tanks.....nothing high tech...no thin carbon fiber or kevlar with a synthetic core, just an old school, hand laminated....but a very thick and heavy hull...about an inch thick I believe from what they advertise...and thats for the 20 something sized hull......that is some thick glass....

Bang your fist around on other manufactures hulls. Then try the same thing on an Albury Brothers hull. You'll break your hand. I think it might even break a ball peen hammer handle before you get through the glass.

Should I put a quarter in my hull somewhere or is it too late?

I see the old wood boat is for sale on Broadway. What year is it? Any cool history?

Cheers,
GFS

The wood boat is a 1975, 22 footer. She was completely restored and repowered in 2004-6. There were 3 of these 22 footers built, only 2 exist. Most of the wooden boats are 16-19 feet. She was also the first boat Don Albury worked on.

The build quality is outstanding. I have said it before on this site, my Albury 20 is now 5 years old and there is not ONE shake, rattle or squeak. About a year ago i was fishing for bait, stopped dead in the water when the boat in the photo came plowing through the pack and rammed my boat hitting us on the starboard stern corner. The impact flexed in his hull at about halfway between the waterline and gunnel. The Albury just moved a little but not even a fracture or crack in the glass. Not sure how many other boats would have come away unscathed.

Sandy,
You need one of those 33's, then that trip to the Abaco's would be much smoother!!

So true, so true. Bug season opens 8/1 no? Will the Eagle be landing? What about the quarter? Is that only for Virgin molds?

Love their Mission at Albury. No compromise.

Cheers,
GFS
