Steve, I can scan and send you the manual for my 1984 Islander 30 Bahama, if you want. What year is the boat? Islander installed Universal Atomic A4 gasoline engines for most of the run of 30 footers but switched to Volvo MD7A diesel engines in the mid to late '70s. Apparently the Yanmar 2GMF was also an option -- mine has the Yanmar and I have seen a few others with one as well. There are other differences among the model years too, but they are minor.
Anyway, if you want the manual then send me your e-mail address in a PM.
