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

a general view!

you can see the 4 lines from mast to 4 anchors in mud with chains...pilings are galvanized and all you have to do is get the correct 2-3 degree tilt and winch the boat fast to the pilings

tomorrow bottom paint...today was grinding the hull keel joint, 5200 fast cyre in places and some glass patchwork in some areas...to help

simple but you need to work fast cause of the tides...well see what happens tomorrow!

peace

Im spent!

gravy baby

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

Wow! I am amazed that the hull can handle the load in that direction.

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

youd be surprised what these and many boats can handle must get the angles right and not move the boat after its still

funliily enough I was on another thread where there was a boat left in a similar situation but it was a pure fin keel and small...and it was at an angle stuck in mud and not made fast to anything like when careening...that would be bad for a prolonged period for sure

btw the keel is on sand bags,,,which is much softer and kind of wraps around the keel base

paint and patchwork done

tonight at 9pm she is back on the mooring!

yay

I wanted to at least to the big ports the 4 rear ones...in tinted acrilic but Im having a hard time gettings some down here

I even thought about using tempered shatter proof glass like for cars
