Seems to be? Great if we (someone?) can port some/all of the Albin Vega database over here?

Everyone should spread the word so we can all be on the same page so to speak.

Yep it's working! Glad some people have started showing up! My wife and I own #3360, which we have (tentatively) decided to christen "Tea Cup" ...if I ever get done with the refit. It's been going on since 2016, might be done in another three years.

EDIT: @dixiemermaid is my Admiral, although she prefers SWMBO ...

Someone mentioned a Facebook group. I don't do Facebook. Did they get any of the content, from Yahoo, copied over there? Just thinking out loud. If the messages from the Yahoo group gets pushed here, if that might drive traffic to here instead? I'm a former Albin owner and not up on the latest Albin social activity. I'd hate for Phil to do a lot of porting work if no one ever looks at it.

I'm not much of a facebookie either. But no, I don't think they did or can copy that Yahoo content.

I did post yesterday, giving a heads-up to those on the Facebook group who didn't know the Yahoo group was closing, with a link to this forum. I will continue to drop crumbs over there, leading here. How many will come is anyone's guess. But there is no other English-language Albin Vega discussion forum in the world, to my knowledge. I've seen one in Swedish.

You and me both. Help put the word out!

Side note ... I lived in Alaska as a kid. Took the wife up there a few years ago to see our old home place on the Kuskokwim ... and to go halibut fishing in Seward. The Admiral LOVED Seward! She wants to come back someday when we can stay longer. ;)

I lived up in Fairbanks as a kid and decided to make the move back up last year. Sadly I missed out on fishing this year because of work, but I'm determined to catch some halibut next year. I bought my Vega #1707 over in Homer and sailed it around the kenai peninsula to Seward in May. Alaskan Scenery will never cease to amaze me.

Thanks for coming, Hal!

Crazy coincidence: I was just creeping your Facebook page a couple hours ago! LOL ... once upon a time, you responded to a question of mine on the Yahoo group, concerning your Bimini top. Told me to look at your FB page for some pics. I went back there again this morning for another look. ;)
