New I30 owner--lines to cockpit
I'm shortly taking ownership of an Islander 30 Bahama after Sandy took out my Islander 28. I had the latter fitted out for single-handed sailing which meant bringing back several lines to the cockpit including main halyard, two reef lines, lazy jacks, and the boom vang. Ironically, the smaller boat had more room on the deck for deck organizers and rope clutches. I'd be curious to know if anyone has done something similar on their 30 and would be willing to share pictures of the installation.
The second thing that surprised me was the lack of storage on the 30 compared to the 28. The latter had plenty of storage under the berths and in several areas near the V-berth. I wonder how others deal with storage if underway for longer periods of time.
