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

The islander windows use a plastic that the manufacturer recommends using dow 795 for installation, other sealants eat at the plastic.

Interested in what you do for a liner, my Islander 28's is pretty worn out

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

well for sure there was no dow795 on mine...they had already been done or redone before...

interestingly the lenses are all nice and tight inside the plastic frames so its just a matter of sealing the frames back into the cabins at least for now

well see about the liner or not

I definitely DONT want the original type vynil cover as the zippers all failed and honestly you still couldnt access stuff in order to work on it...Id love to glue some wallpaper ish stuff onto it but I still see that as a lot of work right now

anywhoo

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

so this is what I need help on:

my main sheet scenario! we took off some damaged hardware on each side of the traveler, it seems this is what Im missing for my mainsheet to go back to the winches Im guessing starboard side under the dodger since I have 3 winches there and 2 on port

this is my "new" main sheet aka washed in the machine with salvadorean downy! I also whipped the ends...the difference in pliabilty and ease of handling is impressive...I recomend this to any one with old rope on their boats btw



see this little sheave, its mounted on this custom wood block...Im trying to guess the angles here but IM ASSUMING it leads back under the dodger to one of the winches



my question is is this only one side...(the blocks of wood are on both side, but they were pretty damaged...

how would you guys run the mainsheet? this is beleive it or not my first mid boom sheeting system! jajaja

this is the hardware I have upfront...the eye should be for the vang as well as 2 sets of sheaves on each side that allow for it to be adjusted under the dodger...



however Im assuming also the po led all lines aft, so they might be simply for the halyards

Im not going thata route I like my halyards at the mast, I also whipped them new again...

any and all help appreciated!

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

Christian, the sheave looks like it might be for the outer-most winch on the starboard side, and I believe that's for the mainsheet. If you look closely at the pictures of this Islander:
1977 Islander 36 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

It looks like they run the mainsheet forward to a block at the base of the boom, then down to one of those spring-loaded blocks in your picture, then out to the sheave in question, then back to the winch.

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

This one shows another way of doing it:
1974 Islander 36 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

If you look at the 7th picture, just before the interior shots, you'll see how they did it.

thanks man! I have been pondering pics all last night...

it does seem its this way but they go down to the deck...

not to one of the sheaves on the wood block at the end of each side of the traveller

Im brain farting on what those would be for? The good news is it doesnt look like I need them for now!

It looks like the same goes for whatever boom vang I setup, it looks like it goes on port side...down to the deck sheaves and back to the port side winches...

thanks so much man!
