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

Deep up a river in Southern Thailand, a few days to go before the tide is right for the marine railway haul out. Haul out shheduled for Friday, so not to waste time, I rip apart the engine cooling system, looking for the various issues relating to a hotter running engine then I like. Exhaust manifold off, header tank off, thermostat out, heat sensor out, in process of rerouting engine driven refrigeration raw water cooling lines when the Boatyard manager gives me call. O800 after a boyz night in town. Fuzzy headed I scramble to get sorted, damn, slack tide in 45 minutes, no time for the engine....rigged up the dinghy and moved the 44 footer into the slipway.. throwing lines to the shore crew, getting centered in the slipway, just in time as the tide starts to ebb, a bit of a lean to starboard so more lines out and back to the primaries.....Chinese fire drill getting the dinghy motor back on the stern and the dinghy on the foredeck while in the slipway. Divers in the water placing the supports.....all in day out cruising.

Parts in hand, fixing boats in paradise...

Moving up the slipway, surrounded by Thai fishing boats.

Keep trying to sell it to someone from neighboring countries. They are good buyers. Also you can exchange it for a building lot, on the ocean, in an acceptable country.
