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

very nice jerry! really nice sail...

your upper tell tales are flying well...that is a good shape you have there...

little update on my end is yanmar 2qm15 is getting a freshen up with rings, gaskets, and a paint job

still looking for a good used genoa for the trip or in fact a drifter since winds are so light and variable down there...


thanks for the update jerry...

when I was in thailand I never got a chance to go to rolly tasker but I love the full batten main they did for my boat for was a nice surprise when I bought the old boat to see such a nice cruising main on there

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

Last week while in Phuket, brought my sails in for repair and modification to Rolley Taskers. First thing that catches your eye upon entering is they only hire woman. Actually that is also the second thing that catches your eye. Anyway figured the main was a bit to long so 6 inches was removed from the top. Now it is a bit easier to flatten. Also the Sunbrella was coming un stitched from the head sail so that was brought in. This head sail is a 135 and because of that the boat does not point as well as it could so ordered a 98 to take its place.

The repair and mods took 2 days and the new sail was done below the quoted price in 2 additional days. Also new life lines were made at the same time. I am very happy with the work there.

And the finished product flying...

I have made a promise to myself, to God to my family that I WILL GO BACK and show them what the sea is, what the WORLD is...

its getting away from the MACHINE that never stops eating like MOITESSIER wrote about back in the 50s in his writings thats important for me

HOWEVER im fully aware that in order to do so in this insane and powerhungry world that you have to make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ in order to acheive those dreams as trading and bartering and working for free seems to have dissapeared into the oblivion or abyss of histories past.

so with that said

never stop dreaming guys and never stop DOING as when you do so you die before your body actually expires...

sail the soul guys


Excellent and inspiring post. "Peace" my friend.
