Re: Islander 30 seeking other Islander 30 people

Eric,
Thanks for the reply. The biggest difference between the two boats is the layout of the main cabin. I am not all that familiar with the Bahama but from photos of boats for sale the big difference is below deck. The rigging and cockpit is pretty much the same. Mine has a Palmer P-60 gas engine. I know a lot of the Islanders had diesel engines but it was the only Islander at the dealer where I bought it so I was stuck with the gas engine. I bought the boat when I lived in Michigam and it was on Lake St. Clair and Huron until I bought it back three years ago. So its been in fresh water all the time and is in good condition. The gel coat topsides has some issues but the hull and deck are sound. Look forward to hearing from you on how your project are going.
