Re: Islander 28
I saw one come into Edmonds tonight while at Anthony's. "Solaris Rose" IIRNameC! Well taken care of boat.
BUT, as far as rot goes, ANY boat that is 30 someodd yrs old, with some wood, may have rot issues!
I'm not sure how some designers stay in biz either. As long as they design boats people like the look of, the manufacture builds a price point correct boat with said design......they all stay in biz. besides, I'd bet Bob did not spec the hatch hardware!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
