Re: Islander Freeport 36

The forward drains are probably the ones doing the work when you're sleeping in the V berth on a rainy night. It's not all that uncommon for builders to combine drains like sink and cockpit, but a bit less than ideal. You can never have too much drainage in the event you get caught in rough conditions. Those through hulls probably should not be closed underway unless the sink tends to fill when heeled.

Re: Islander Freeport 36

I prefer forward and aft cockpit drains because you never know how the boat is going to be trimmed. I generally slope the cockpit sole down away from the wheel so that when it is wet there is no puddle of water at the helmsman's feet. Guess how I learned that.

Re: Islander Freeport 36

We met some folks at the boat show in Seattle that sell watermakers. They have a Islander Freeport (I think) and they have a blog. They got into some pretty rough conditions off the coast of Washington and Oregon a couple years ago and the boat did fine. Their blog is;

Nice looking design!
Lots of info on the 'net, like this link:
Pacific Northwest Boating News: Boat review | 1978 Islander Freeport 36 | Three Sheets Northwest

If you are getting serious... write to designer Bob Perry. He has had (for decades, IIRC) an awesome scheme of providing unlimited advice about any of his designs for a one-time charge. Considering his knowledge, it's always seemed like a great deal.
