Owner Support & Registry

Repair, Refit and Restoration

Owners 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.

Boat Drawings

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 or pilothouse.

Boat Identification

In case an Alden boat owner can’t locate the design number and the boat is not one of the listed Alden Classics or One Designs, we might be able to with enough information. We have prepared the following questionnaire as a supplement to the “Owner Information” form.
