New Islander 28 owner

I have just purchased a 1978 I28. It needs some love and I hope to have her ship shape soon. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanx
Wally :O}

Islanders are good boats, easy to sail and forgiving. I had an I26 and got a lot of enjoyment using her. Had a problem with chain-plate leaks and had to re-bed them along with typical issues associated with older boats. But over all she was a solid well built boat for a 26'. I assume the I28's are the same.

The 28's name is "Later" and she is on the cradle right now...going in the water in 2 days. I'll post some pics when in the water. The lines are in good shape but very dirty...thinking abut taking a 5 gallon bucket with some detergent and water and a plunger to wash the dirt/mildew out...any suggestions? I'd rather not remove halyards and rigging if I don't have to.
