Good morning Chuck - my wife and I are "future" Albin 32+2 Owners as we plan on purchasing one this year and taking the boat on the Great Loop starting in April, 2013. We do know Doug and Rhonda Fuller who will be at the reunion. Do you have any problem with us attending the functions on Wednesday and we will stay at the motel that night?? Conversations with Albin Owners who may have done the Great Loop or portions of the trip will be helpful in planning our trip.
