at this point anything works...honestlt all I need the pulpit for is as a tie up for a flaked sail...as you can see in some of the pics..I still have the toerails to tie it down

honestly I didnt miss it as much as I thought I would...the forestay is your major grab point anyways...

of course this isnt ocean cruising but simply day sailing with a beer in your hand at all times

next week is a big event...baby will be 1 year old...and we will be going on board and daysailing with the family...

then its maybe a trip down the coast to the gulf of fonseca for some mini cruising!!!!!!!!

peace

Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Christian with a SS welder and 6'' of tubing you can repair the pulpit.
A flat of wood with the same stanchon holes as the boat, take everything to shore.
With a vise you make the ripped up base flat again. Bye Bye chrome coating.
The large section warmed by propane, wear gloves and clamped wooden sleeves on the best section, BEND THE OTHER ONE, in the better direction.
Even bolt the bases on the plank to bend it.
If you end up short an inch or two to weld in, your man has extra.
The welds can be ground invisible.
Never say never!

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

For pulpit straight pipes and 45 fittings your man should be able to do something that will work using some of the harder bends salvaged from the damaged one . Should be easy to make something that will work if he has a hacksaw and a welder.

May have looked similar but different designers. The earliest 32 (1963) was designed by McGlasson. The later ones (1976 & 1977) by Bob Perry. The 36 was designed by Alan Gurney. Quite different profiles.

This one is for sale super cheap in Dorval, Quebec, and doesn't need much to work well.

however it is shoal draft

the older 32 came in 2 versions one with a sprit later named the 34 and the 32.

My previous boat was a old version 34 with baby sprit, and cutaway full keel...

dont know how I got so into islanders but they pick you, not the other way around! jajaja

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Looks like you've done a LOT of work. Did you buy the boat locally?

Yep, the 32 Mark II is the model Islander I had. Actually, it's still in my marina, just on a different pier from me.

The coolest thing it had was a dinette table that just came out of the bulkhead and unfolded into the salon. It was completely hidden away when not in use.

The worst thing was the head. I'm 6'3" and 250 pounds, and I could barely squeeze into it.
