I've got images of the before, during and after replacing the floors etc. Building a place to post, will advise when complete.

BTW, I had composed a couple of paragraphs on the rudder thread but lost them when this site didn't play nice...

I am also putting together some notes on plugging holes in the hull, will advise when posted. I'll try to get the rudder tube stuff in there too.

Also, the the very best things about i28 are Bob Perry design inspired. I understand he gave them the design and then they did the engineering. The few problems we face stem from construction and engineering which were the respobsibility of Islander yachts. The keel stub, floors, mast strut footing (on the plywood cabin sole) were all theirs (financial choices no doubt) and we are given opportunities to address these issues as required. An i28 could be made perfect but then we wouldn't have time to sail them. I prefer the manageable "working toward perfection" approach.

Thanks Bob Perry, I think of you each time I sail my most excellent boat.
