There's no such thing, really; there's a lot of variation from boat to boat, plus at least two major revisions of the interiors. What's your hull number and year? I own hull #256, an early 1978 boat.

Roughly speaking, up through #300 are (mostly) teak and holly sole boats with a U-shaped galley. Above that they go to a plain plywood sole and carpet. Somewhere in 1982 they switched the galley layout to an L-shape (and numerous other details, but that's the big one).

Islander 28.com is a pretty good resource. Bob Perry's Yacht Design book also has some background information if you're interested, plus there's an old Good Old Boat review of the Islander 28.

What sort of information are you looking for?

I have one

Hi Bar1,

I have a manual for my 78 Islander which I scanned into my PC over the weekend. It's 4.5 MB in size and is in PDF format so you will need Adobe Reader in order to view it. I tried attaching to this note but I'm limited to what I can attach. If you want to send me your e-mail address, I'll send it your way.

Thanks,

Fodder

P.S. I included the cover page at least!

I got your message and I think I replied, however my computer skills are not great. If I could get a copy of the manual I would appreciate it. Thanks

Just sent you a private message, Bar1. Just need your private e-mail to send you a manual.

Let's try it this way, then. I've posted the manual onto my Skydrive on MSN. Try this link here: Islander Manual 78.pdf - Windows Live Let me know if you have any troubles downloading it. Or anyone else, for that matter!

Good Luck
