Re: I28 - Gas Tank Info

No baffles in my 1978 aluminum tank which may not be the original. My boat was converted to diesel. The combination of a diesel engine and no baffles has led to the engine dying if the tank gage is...

Re: Moisture around chainplates

A warning to I-28 owners and possibly others. The fiberglass-covered plywood partial bulkhead to which the forward starboard chain plate is attached is exposed to deck leakage around its chain...

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

Two things which could prove helpful:

1) Locals report old logging cables etc. in Anderson Bay and recommend an anchor trip line and float when anchoring just in case you snag an artifact.

2)...

Re: I-28 Vinyl Headliner Replacement

Nice boat! What year? My vinyl is stretched much tighter over the curved sections and I have different vinyl trim...... Off topic - what are those lights over the same Origo stove I have?

Re: I-28 Vinyl Headliner Replacement

Downeast, now you've got my attention! First, because unlike that lucky California dog 510, I'll bet Downeasters maintain a working relationship with condensation. Second, because anyone who regards...

Re: I-28 Vinyl Headliner Replacement

I stand corrected on the material. You are also correct that the 1/4" open cell foam on the back of my existing vinyl would saturate every winter and take most of the summer to dry out. It never...

Re: I-28 Vinyl Headliner Replacement

An interesting approach 510. I considered much the same thing except for your ingenious treatment of the aft corners of the cabin trunk. I backed off this approach mostly because I could never...

Re: Compresion post repaired

Thanks 510, I'll double check mine. When you were rooting around down there did you have a chance to see what kind of wood was used in the cross members? Mine are completely fiberglass covered so I...

Re: Compresion post repaired

Just to prove how detail-oriented I am, it's "Bruynzeel" plywood. An interesting story with a little internet search. Bottom line, it's slipped a little but is still just about indestructable. ...

Re: Compression post issue

There have been quite a few discussions about this issue over the years and searching back in various fora might help. The original design by Bob Perry had a keel-stepped mast so the fault lies with...

I-28 Vinyl Headliner Replacement

Well, all the staples have about rusted out and the zipper pulls have turned to dust so it's time to think about replacing the vinyl overhead on my 1979 Islander 28. I'm a little tired of the 1970's...

Re: Compresion post repaired

At least on the 1979 version I have, all the cabinets and the countertop were a high quality teak veneer plywood but I think not Bruneel. It looked different from the stuff I assumed was Bruneel...

Re: Compresion post repaired

Amen to that! You shouldn't expect to be able to tango in the cabin of a 28' boat. Anyway, it's not that much of a squeeze and that's what I would do if I was starting over with the mast. The boat...

Re: Compresion post repaired

I'll have a shot at some answers but "experienced" is probably an overstatement of my qualifications. First, even if the fix gets nasty, stick with it because the boat is worth the effort. The...

Quite a project. I'm glad it worked. My approach was no less complicated and started with the observation that the 1979 mast base casting had small divots in the vertical flange on both sides which...

I'm tending to agree with "cktalons" that we have been overstating the obvious a bit. I include myself in that category. What we are basically discussing is a risk management decision which, when...

Paul Comte pretty much nailed it. The problem results from placing two pieces of plywood under compression. As most of us understand, resisting compression isn't something plywood is supposed to...

Keel bolt torque specs

Does anyone know the torque specs for the keel bolts on a 1969 Coronado 25? I understand that this may be a sister hull to the Catalina (Columbia??) 25 of the same vintage. Although mine appear to...
