The Albin Ballad Project

The Albin Ballad 30′ Sloop that was mostly redone under a tarp and in a few small workshops over the winter of 2012-13  in Marblehead, MA.  It was launched in July, and in October sailed south for warmer weather.  The pics below and ongoing blog reflect the boat, people, and places involved.

  1. Nice blog! Thanks for all the photos. We are gutting and rebuilding a 1972 Ballad in Wyoming, destined for Mexico & points West. It is good to see both the process & results. Have you visited the Ballad Exchange discussion board? It is a quiet & civil place. Your presence would be very welcome.
