21' Albert-E

Postby pepparoy » Wed Nov 23, 2011 3:27 am

seems the last time this boat was built was when I was a young bloke ( judging by the photos ) and there has never been a documented build ?
she is a beauty from what I can see and maybe just a notch or 2 above the Cabin skiff 20' - but with my limited knowledge of boats tell me if i am wrong

my fishing ground is moreton bay and i want the capability of going deep sea weather permitting
i have read some about using automotive transmissions and was wondering if it is applicable in this build
i would like to hear the opinions from you pro's on this design

Welcome to the forum. The Albert E is a classic looking cruiser. I have wondered why no one has built one recently. I think you will have a great boat. As cheap as Velvet drive transmisions sell for I think I would just use one of those.

I'm just guessing here,but I think the length for an auto trans is more than a marine trans from the block to the tail shaft.

This would make the engine stick up higher as well as longer forward.

Its a pitty nobody documented Albert E build on the forum.
Maybe this design is not popular as the inner space is not so big.
But lines of this boat are really neat.
Especially that one build by Ernest Demaray looks lovely.

No idea if it’s true here. But on another forum the designer said about 5% of builders document their boats online.

Maybe OP will show back up with a completed Albert-e. :|

I really considered the Albert E. The numbers are almost the same as the Bartender 22, except the Bartender is double ended. I scaled the BT up 6% to a LOA of 24' and a beam of 8'-4".
