Re: Island Packet 35
I fully realize that this is an OLD thread.
However, I'd be very interested in hearing from some current (and former) owners of Island Packet 35's.
Do YOU concur with Jeff's evaluation that the IP 35 is mainly suited for boaters not interested in sailing and that, in fact, they sail poorly in heavy going. Are they REALLY so slow that, in your experience, you had to motorsail in order to get anywhere in a reasonable amount of time?
