Congrats on you new pride and joy! The Islander 36 is a great boat and you will get years of joy from her if you take care of her.
You know, I think you might get more replies if you can be more specific. What sort of insights interest you? Maintenance? Mods? Upgrades? Specific equipment? Sailing techniques that work well with the 36? Common failure points? Sails? Let us know!
