Refit and Restoration
of Alden designed boats can benefit from
contacting us before they undertake any
major repairs, refits or restorations. We
can supply copies of drawings and building
specifications as needed making it easier
to assess the project and often less costly
to implement. We are also well positioned
to handle design modifications and refit/restoration
management if needed since we have all of
the boats’design data in our files.
We encourage owners of Alden
designed boats to check their boat files
to make sure they include a set of drawings
and specifications. Having access to the
information these documents give makes boat
maintenance and ownership a lot simpler.
We can provide a list of the available drawings
for all of our designs. All we need to know
is the boat’s design number and hull
identification letter(s). An Alden design
number consists of a maximum of four digits
followed by (where more than one boat has
been built to the same design) one or two
letters. The number can be found on the
title block of any John G. Alden drawing
already on hand or in some cases, on a plaque
located in the boat’s cockpit, companionway
