Christian, the fact that you don't have a boat (or that yours is for sale) doesn't mean you have to stop coming here.

Best of luck, Christian.. and a logical move, too.

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

and I know the price is high when you look at it from a distance...but it isnt even remotely profitable from my time and $$ invested.

for all of you up north who know what these kind of jobs are worth like bulkheads gelcoat and glass work and haulouts, they still require labor and time and $$ down in el salvador.

the price reflects work done and a hefty chunk of $$ off an similar islander 36 of same vintage.

Those who know know that these boats are always in the 15k plus range no matter where or what.

sooooooo come on down(im already up here, jajaja) and start in paradise.

Id be more than happy to talk over the phone on theexact details of whats needed to finish the boat off and sail into the sunset.

peace and thanks to all for all the well wishes and help over this past year with the boat.

Hopefully ill be back with a boat up here soon!

I think the sale is a sanity sale, too. I know you put a lot of work into her, but in the end I think this is a wise move.

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

2 and a couple of old tires...jajaja

seriously though...it is for sale. Im looking into getting a boat here and lake sailing with the family, its beatiful here(lake eufala) cheap, close to home and great sailing weather.

its safe, easy drive, and well honestly its all we are looking for...no reason to have a boat sit for 5 or so years while we save up(for that long cruise)

not to mention not be able to use it on a regular basis...

thought about bringing it up but its so expensive to keep it in florida(closest place is destin and or panama city)...$400 a month or so...plus the cost of refitting and bringing it up well you know how it goes!!!

sorry to bum you guys out but tis life...the move to georgia was a sanity move.

thanks
