Welcome to the Albin Owners Group!
This forum is dedicated to Albin boats, owners, prospective owners, and fans.

AOG was founded in 2006 by John Collins of Baltimore, Md., to exchange information, ideas and knowledge about all models of Albins and boating in general. John helped organize and took part in many Albin rendezvous over the years, and made personal friendships with many of us, all introduced through this forum. John passed away in June, 2023 -- an enormous loss to his family and friends, including this group. A core group of volunteer forum members is working to carry his legacy forward.

With over 6,300 users and 88,000 posts as of October, 2023, we have a wealth of information.

There are three levels of membership:

Forum guests can read all posts, but photos are not displayed.

To view photos, please become a Registered Member by selecting the Register link at the top right of the page. Registering is a two-step process involving email verification. Yes, it's an extra step, but it helps us control robots and spam.

Supporting Members have access to the Document Library. To become a Supporting Member, we ask for a donation of any amount you choose.

Donations may be made via Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_b ... 3XEQH3TLW8. Donations help cover the hosting fees for the site. Any excess funds help support Albin rendezvous and important boating causes.
Another option is to purchase an AOG burgee and become a Supporting Member at the same time. viewtopic.php?t=14454

We welcome your participation and are grateful for your support.

dhersh - welcome aboard!
I'm not sure what survey you're referring to. We don't have one as far as I know.
As for donation, there's been no notification from Paypal.

I'm onboard. :-) This great forum has been a source of inspiration and Albin-info from the start. Would hate to see it go.

DCatSea and gmb --

Thank you for your very generous donations. Plans are underway to move to a new hosting server. We will likely stay with the same provider which should make the migration easy (she says optimistically!).
