Re: I30 Mark II Profile Drawing

So it wasn't me who was confused!

I do think that's it.. There's an older Islander 32/33 that's probably a McGlasson design as well.

While Finch did the 1970 model it's possible someone else retooled and tweaked the design, and redesigned the keel and rudder, likely modified the deck/cockpit molds as well. Could even have been done in-house by Islander. Looks like it could be the same basic hull though.

OK so now we're all on the same page! btw Sailboatdata.com is your friend!

Re: I30 Mark II Profile Drawing

It is my understanding that the Islander Bahama 30 was very similar to the I 30 MK II except for three factors:
1. It was a little lighter.
2. The sail area is a bit different. I know the main sail is different, perhaps Bacon Sail has rig measurements for both.
3. I also believe that the Bahama designation was given when Islander moved its production facilities from California (Coasta Mesa?) to somewhere in the Caribbean or Latin America, I'm not sure which.

I should add that Aquila, Sail 462, my I 30 MK II was built 1974-75. Commissioned in Duluth, MN. We knew the original owner and purchased it in 1985 and have had it since. A great boat.

Hope this adds some clarification, not confusion.

Best,

JYJ

You can find all the facts and figures, including rig dimensions, for all the I30 models at SailboatData.com. They confirm what John was saying.

Interestingly, I had not noticed the I30-2 TM model previously. It appears to be the I30-2 hull set up with a rig almost identical to that of the I30-Bahama. The foregoing hyperlinked names lead the the associated Sailboatdata.com pages where you can see for yourself.

UPDATE: Faster, you beat me to the punch while I was typing.

Re: I30 Mark II Profile Drawing

I thought I posted this last night, but I do not see what I wrote then. If it is here twice, my apologies.

Three things that may help with the difference between the I 30 MK II and the I 30 Bahama:
1. The 30 has a slightly different rig dimension. I am not sure what it is, but I know when I was getting a new main made several years ago one place sent me dimensions that were wrong, then I noticed they had I 30 Bahama, even though I had said I 30 MK II. I did not have them do my work.
2. The I 30 Bahama is lighter. I don't know if the hull is thinner or what, but it displaces a little less.
3. It is my understanding that the I 30 was made "off shore." The plant in California closed and in an effort to keep making Islanders production was moved to the Caribbean or Latin America, I'm not sure which. (Maybe that is where the name "Bahama" came from.
Hope this helps.
