Very impressed by your progress so far.
I’m an Albin Vega owner and I wondered what modifications if any you made to the boat for this voyage (strengthening rigging, bracing beam under mast, …)?
All the best
I added a new 3 inch thick bulkhead under the mast made of white oak. I kept kept part of the old bulkhead there but the original bulkhead is not a very hard wood. I also replaced the forepeak bulkhead with normal wood I pulled out of a dumpster (its a low budget trip) Theres new rigging, but the u-bolt chain plates are the same. The boat is more or less the same as all Vegas.
The Vega is a very basic boat but holds up well. I would of liked to have beefed up the rudder but I didn’t have the time or money.
