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

My Admiral has said to me "I thought we didn't buy a project boat" (because I do a fair amount of neglected maintenance). I showed her this project so now she understands what an undertaking a "refit" or project boat really is.

How long do you think it will take? What kind of temps do you have in the boat while working?

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

85f or around 30c...

it has taken 5 months of ripping out, people getting lazy...workers out of money blah blah blah...we started in september

most of the hardwork is already done...for example you might think its easy but ripping out old wood and glass work is tedious and slow...the cabin sides are now painted and Im seing whether I like it white and clean or with vynil like stock

I think Ill do paint and fair it...

Ill post a pic of my new MASSIVE chainplates too

instead of 1/4 inch I went 3/8ths...longer and wider to distribute loads better and you would not beleive the price(labor is cheap)

other stuff

removing an engine

decks

next is rigging(thats all me)

overall nothing is extremely hard just tedious

oh there is nice offshore breaze now every day 15 knots so quite decent no need for fans...and its not humid...but dry salty air...which is good

rainy season is a whole nother shebang!

peace

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

refurbished original backing plates with a new eye so I can tie down a jumper strut to the hull to distribute loads and lessen the bending effect of the aft lower stays pulling up the deck

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

new main chainplates with a view of the eye on the undersided oif stb backing plate:



the new plates are 304 mirror polished 3/8ths inch flatbar with slow drilled precision holes....the plates are 1 inch wider, and almost a 1/4 inch thicker than original

they have also been extended by 1 hole legth port sides and 3 stbd side

backing plates will be a combo of original straps and original chainplates as extenders to hull...

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

what a little paint does to cheer up the cabin and your soul!



I have decided to leave the cabin sides bare...this is cheap oil based paint and I will be using sherwin williams JET BOND which is a plastic flexible bondo type paste that I will use to smooth the crappy job islander did back in the 70s

its impressive how unfinished most interior surfaces are in the cabin, next a pic of original tabbing versus NEW

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

hows this for minimal tabbing from islander:



yes its only the kitchen bulkhead BUT it is tied into the hull so I think my filleted, foam fitted bulkheads will be much better

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

last pic for now, port main bulkhead installed and filleted, next will be grinding and tabbing as well as adding the lower part with tabbing to the hull itself



the new plate was designed to tie both peices together with the lower bolt that way maintenance and access is better plus if one part of the bulkhead fails or gets wet it can be removed and replaced whereas before you had to do major removing of parts

peace

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

port plate and intermediate stays installed!

took me an hour and a half to unhook a damn cotter pin on the port intermediate stay...

port chainplate is dry fitted...after enlarging the deck holes and beveling

so far so good

pics to come

after this its finishing the deck gelcoat which is a mess now thanks to a volcanic eruption in san miguel...the ash got blown west about 100 miles just enough to sprinkle my boat and others all dandy

I hate the decks now uh

later!
