Re: any upcoming issues?

If the boat was set properly with the stands, there should be no issues caused by them. The weight of the hull rests on the keel and the stands are pretty much there just to balance the boat.

Are you launching the boat or just moving it over road? Trucking should pose few problems. The Islander 32 is a pretty tough boat.

I would check all thru hull fittings. Make sure they seal properly and also have wooden plugs on hand when you launch. Have the yard drop the boat in the water but keep it in the slings until you have determined there are no leaks.

Where are you moving it to?
