Re: Islander 30 seeking other Islander 30 people

Hi and welcome to sailnet! -
I am a recent owner of an '81 Islander Bahama 30, and can easily see what would prompt you to buy the same boat twice - Mine was in less than good condition, but still had the potential to be a great boat - working on this boat has been a pleasure - seems as though the layout and construction was well considered - so far I've found few things on the boat which have been overly difficult to get to or repair -
Would be interested in hearing what differences are between the MKII - and any tips you might provide on do's and don'ts in terms of rigging and sailing this boat - since I know inherently that "Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions" I'd like to try to avoid some of those bad decisions!

Thanks
Eric
