Those look amazing! We are definitely in need of some new padding for all the seating in the boat. The PO, I am sure, cleaned the seat covers when in use but the are fading fast and need to be redone. Thankfully my girlfriend is an expert seamstress. So we are covered! Love the look of the teak!

it makes me happy though that my ramblings and work at least help others in their projects on the same boat.

someday Ill either get my islander back up here or sell here to somebody with the same goals and dreams

till then happy sailing to all

Christian, glad to see that you still check these! Thank you very much! We are going to be trying our best to document our upgrade as we go as well. I am a web developer and figured since it is my job, I might as well use my skills to help myself out.Minimally Simply Happily. Check it out in a bit. It is still quite bare.

The best of luck with the job and the family. Sailing and the love of ocean is not something that most people can wrap their heads around after all. Good luck with the boat! Hopefully you are able to see her again. :-)

I REALLY NEED TO SELL THIS BOAT, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD...


I will give it away for $5.5k cash...first come first serve(I had an offer fall through for 7k so whatever)

I am looking to buy my first home here, and would need some money for a down payment and moving expenses etc...I am practically selling the boat for half what I bought it for BEFORE all the stuff and work I did

my loss but I got bigger and better stuff to do than leave a boat rot...

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

I thought for a second that your boat sold, and the owner was going to continue. How is the new restaurant going?

First post on here and first time sailor. Just bought a 1974 Islander 36 "Breese" in Oriental, NC and had her sailed up to Annapolis, MD where we are staying. Quiet a few issues, but the PO was a jack of all trades and kept her in as best of condition he could on a shoe string budget. Due to health issues, he had to part ways with her but gave our Captain Chris Goodwin no problems up the ICW and Chesapeake.

For starters:

1: The steering cable connecting the steering wheel and the rudder needs to be replaced.
2: The mast step is in need of replacement.
3: Port and Stb side port windows all need to be redone.
4: Veneer around windows is all water f****d. So off with that.
5: Need to replace the old bilge pump is working but needs to be replace.
6: keep bolts need to be pulled and keel dropped in order to redo the J-hooks. (Currently original keel and bolts from 1974)
7: Mast and step need to be replaced (Currently original mast and mast-step)

Those just to name the few things to start off with.

She was on the hard for two years without being used. Luckily the PO winterized it really well so motor runs like a champ and the rigging was redone at the time of the boat being hauled out.

Not sure yet, but we will need to de-mast the boat come fall into winter to completely strip and inspect EVERYTHING.

Will keep you all updated! This is my girlfriend and I's first boat and first ever project working on one. I hope to be able to pick everyone's brain here and there. Please feel free to give me a shout if anyone lives in the area and would be willing to take a couple out sailing just to watch and learn (we bring cold beers and amazing Portuguese food). No instruction needed. I need to see the boat sailing once again so I can out my finger down on how everything works before starting this project.

Hope everyone is doing well! And thank you @christian.hess . Your instruction until now will help us so much with our learning curve!
