Hello from Southern California
I'm finally getting around to posting this. I just recently purchased a 1976 Islander 36. It is a pretty clean boat but needs the typical repair and replacement that a boat that age would need.
I've been sailing for about 6 years (mostly lake and SF bay). More recently, I have been sailing out of the Long Beach, CA area.
My wife and kids love it and we will be spending more time on the water once I get a handful of things repaired on our boat.
