spooled up -Love both models you are looking at. They are slightly different though. The albies are designed with a very high deadrise, usually 24 degrees. This enables you to ride quickly through the rough stuff and knife through it. Great trolling boats for sure. The Henriques I believe is more in the area of a 14 degree deadrise and is not a knifer. It is much heavier and will literally beat through the seas. We have a Henriques, and when I say beat through the seas, I do not mean it in a bad way. They will run through some big stuff and always get you home. I am not sure of the Albies weight, but the 38 Henriques is 28,000lbs. A true tank. I believe due to the deadrise that the Henriques would be a better chunking platform and the Albie would be better for trolling. The cockpit is much larger in the Henriques, probably nearly double. If that's important to you, it should be considered. It gives great elbow room for bottom fishing.
Joe, not sure if I am who you think I am. We have our 38' Henriques at Avalon Anchorage Marina on 21st street. It's name is Allure.spooled up -
are you the guy at the end of my lagoon with a 38' Henriques? That is a nice boat. You often see me at our Tiki Bar on 22 st if this is who I think it is. Captn Joe
