islander 32 owner comments

I've owned an 1977 islander 32 for 5 years now and I'll say right here that they are a very well built boat with a keel stepped sealed mast and rigging sized for a 36 footer. I'm not sure lightly built is a adept description as the displacement to length ratio is 300. I sail on the Great Lakes and the storms we've weathered together makes me feel 100% confident in this finely constructed vessel. Shes a little slow in light air but well balanced and very stiff. When set up properly she tracks like a train. I'd be happy to address any specific questions if I can.
