Da%mn, Artbyjody is right spot on. I wish i could'a said that.

rather than an islander 3o, I'd look at the 36'ers. I think there's 3 boats made on the islander 30 mold, Erickson, and ...well, another one that I can't remember.

The 36 was made by only one yard (maybe the herrscoff yard) and the work was pretty good. The 30's on this mold had chainplate problems and usually need to be reseated. Watch for soft decks at the shrouds.

Just checking in.
Where ya'll keep'n the wimmin 'round here?
