The worst thing was the head. I'm 6'3" and 250 pounds, and I could barely squeeze into it.
the islander 36 has the exact same table

there is a pic on here showing it...it hinges up against the main mast bulkhead, honestly every time I hop down into the cabin with the table stowed it looks soooooooooooooooo wide and beamy and spacious Im just not used to it

I come from folkboats, h28, excalibur 26 and other similiar boats, my last boat an islander 34 had some similiarities in construction but had no where near the same interrior volume as the 36

cant wait to sail it again...wish more wind would show up though...these boats are slow in 10knots...15-20 is where they like to be...

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

thanks delta! long time no see! jajaja

yeah...it will be a sailing vacation commute...

beats chartering at least...

the ideal dream would be to come down twice a year with the family and enjoy the boat a couple of weeks at a time...

heres hoping!

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

here are a couple of more pics

Im really excited about my main...its a heavy cruising main by rolly tasker with nice deep reefs...and full battened and its in real great shape...just a little cleaning needed. I love my reefing setup too...just clew hooks on individual lines and blocks to a winch on the boom is all that is needed...SIMPLE



and a view up...my jib sucks though and is streteched, one bronze hank was seized thats why you have the crease down the middle too



and posted this pic on the picture thread


I like the sunny contrast...its shows the heat and humidity! jajajaa

peace guys

hey thanks man!

beleive it or not for a while there I thought the keel would fall off....jajajajaajaja

it moves, chainplates are solid, bulkheads are solid and well it sails...Ill do some fine tuning here and there before I leave.

I wanna take her out the estuary and do a quick sail down the coast...I just have to
