Help - Islander 28

Thanks for the replies,

I didn''t buy the Islander. I spent some qaulity time with the boat and found way more than I felt like taking on. There were no problems with the Deck as it is solid fiberglass and looked fine, but the compression post had collapsed the support under the floor and would have required the mast be removed, floor cut and new stainless foot be installed. All in all, I could have done it...but the idea is to sail not to restore. It is hard to get past that since I have worked on old Mustangs much of my life for a hobby. Difference is, I can keep them in the garage.

Thanks again for the help. The Survey is certainly the way I will go. It sometimes helps to hear it again.
