Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!
btw my foresails suck!
they look like crap, stained and rusted, also this sail in the pic is not even for the boat as its luff is 5 ft short...so its probably something like a 75% so it was painfully slow sailing against the tides, also didnt help to be towing 2 dinghies...
one was for the ride back when the wind died.
Also it was funning anchoring by sail only at the estuary mouth, this is where all the cruisers come into bahia del sol anchorage on the cruisers rally and others...
I really had fun yesterday, had many a beer and relaxed...although getting to know the boat was exhausting while tacking against the current in an 8-10knot breeze.
Need to retune the rigging a bit, my intermediates are a bit loose but the mast is in column, good rake and tune and no vibes while sailing...hope I get to sail here in 20knots plus as that is where these boats shine...
Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
