Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'
Here's some advice I am certain that you will ignore.
For a few thousand dollars you can buy a vessel like this with a nice interior, working engine, battery and electrical system, some instruments, lots of expensive gear, and you can enjoy your boating, eventually selling it for what you paid for her. This would be the wise thing to do.
Alternatively you can take something free (because it has no value), put days on weeks in trying to sort it out, spend thousands of dollars adding the equipment a vessel needs, then eventually you will also give it away.
Certified...in several regards...
