Island Packet Cruisers

We are in the process of purchasing a 1990 Island Packet 32...can't wait to have her here in the South Puget Sound.

I'd like to hear the tips and tales of others who have cruised on this type of boat - anyone willing to share?

Drop a line to - the owner of the site ipyoa (yacht owners association). He can point you to a mail server run by a nazi who, if you'll make sure you rigidly adhere to his "interesting" rules, will allow you to join the successor to the great sailnet mailling list successor for the IPs. Membership will allow you access to the archives which include all the mail which used to be available on Sailnet's mail server (IP only, of course).

Hayden has a 35, Island Spirit; you may find a website with that name on it as well. He's a fantastic fellow, and tight with the factory as well. The IP mailing list, if you can get past the admin (reasonably, it's his site, he pays for it, so he can run it however he pleases)'s quirks (he comes out as "Captain Truth" - just to give you an idea - whenever he thinks someone is less that perfect), is a great resource. You'll likely develop some good friends there. I still have many which stay connected despite my second and final booting from there :**)) You might also try mailing him (Bruce Gregory) directly or just wandering around

So, in any event, do get in touch with Hayden Cochran first. Please also tell Hayden the Flying Pig sez hi and we're tired of waiting for him to come cruising with us :**))
