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

man its been a while

but a few updates here

it feels like 1 step forward and 3 back at this point but progress is progress

dodger(stictched up a bit, not the best but fine for around here and coastal)



outboard mount block



davits with treated pine base...its not perfect but will do for now



the davits came out nice...they are clear coated too so should last a bit



tuned the rig, just need to do some tweaking on some tacks each way to get it perfect, whenever that first sail comes by, someday I hope



fairing the cabin sides, Im on the fence with the white top paint but the sides are coming out nicely and will be very smooth!



white cabin top paint...honestly it looke better from a distance...there are so many imperfections, voids, etc that I feel like there is a reason it came with a vynil cover...



thats it for now

the interior is a mess with dust EVERYWHERE and paint spills etc...man do one thing and mess up a million more! jajajaja

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

Some liquid wax on the clear plastic in the dodger, would help.
Any word from the couple in trouble, down the coast from you?

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

Liquid wax can be a problem. Many waxes and polishes have petrochemicals in them as solvents, and those permanently damage any vinyl, plexiglass, etc. they are used on. They cause long-term yellowing and crazing. The ones that are safe to use on clear plastics should always say so on the label. Or, you need to find the water-based ones.

Christian that's some mountain of work you have done! If you want to cover the cabin overhead without using vinyl padding, there are wall-covering materials that are commonly used in motels, etc. in the US. One brand name is "kydex" but there are many of them. Basically a 4x8 foot sheet of a textured (on one side) plastic that looks like wallpaper, but has enough thickness to go over a rough surface and finish it off. And enough strength so you probably wouldn't need battens to hold it up, even if you didn't glue it.

Personally I like padded overheads or wood battens, but that's lots more work too.

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

thanks man yeah Im not a fan of waxes and stuff they usually end up damaging more in the long run...Ill try some soap and good old elbow grease I dont usually look throgh dodgers anyway1 jajaj just use them to duck under when needed

anyways yeah its a never ending project...

I though about some sort of glueable txture like vynil without using the traditional foam backing, battens, etc

but my question is this?

how do you glue it and make the holes for the hardaware and backing plates etc?

Im all for ideas right now

Im pretty much up to here with crap, and the white paint at this point is a temporary solution as really there is a ton of OTHER stuff to do still

like installing windows, making a cover for the mainsail, ELECTRICAL, install solar panel, regulator and get the house batteries sorted out

someday, someday

at least the big stuff is done like chainplates, bulkheads,rigging etc

"how do you glue it and make the holes for the hardaware and backing plates etc?"

If you are going to glue it up, you've got two choices. Remove the hardware and reinstall it through the liner, or cut a neat hole in the liner wherever you'll need access, and install some kind of trim panel or cover over the hole. Removing the hardware means rebidding but maybe an old boat needs that anyway.

Of course you cold just cover over it but then you'd have to tear things apart every time there was a leak or a need for access.
