Re: Islander 28

I know this is an old post, but I had a I-28 for about 10 years on the Great Lakes. I always felt the boat was solid and handled well, and we sailed in some rough conditions at times. That being said, the access to the engine ( Atomic 4) was about impossible, the mast step rotted out ( poor design), the hardware for the hatches appeared to be pot metal.

Nice sailing boat, but it makes me wonder how some builders and designers stayed in business as long as they did.
