Iron Keel

Iron keels are not really the problem that some peple would lead you to believe. I don''t know about the Hunters (are they an encapsulated keel or exposed? I suspect encapsulated in fiberglass) but I...

Steering Wheel Hub

Thanks Ross but I''ve had a look at those. I''m thinking more along the lines of a wooden wheel that looks just like a stainless steel destroyer wheel but made of laminated teak. I can probably make...

Steering Wheel Hub

I would like to build a teak wheel for my 30 ft Islander Bahama. To do so I need a stainless steel hub that will allow the multiple bolt attachment for the teak and tapered hole for the shaft. I''ve...

Bent Pulpit

I''ve had the same problem with my pulpit. Previous owner was lowering the mast on the 30 ft boat and dropped it the last few feet. The front end of the pulpit was bent down about 30 degrees, the...

Volvo MD7A

Abandon an jewel like the MD7A?!? That''s like saying goodby to an old Atomic 4 (which I have done!). No, for the price I''ll be sticking with this one for a while. It''s still in great shape. I will...

Volvo MD7A

I have one of these faithful motors in my ''78 Islander Bahama 30. Original motor with very good compression. The only issue I have is the soot that it produces at cruising RPM (2200). It covers the...

Cleaning non-skid

The best I have come up with is a stiff brush and a product like Fantastic. The non-skid is designed to grip and it grips everything, including the dirt. Try to stay away from the abrasive cleaners...

Etching mast

Take a good look at the Interlux aluminum paint system. I used it about 12 years ago on a Islander 30 mast. It still looks good. I purchased another Islander 30 last fall and have done the same paint...

Lifelines - need help

So here''s a novel idea. We had to replace our "lifelines" on a 30 ft boat. The retail price to have this done professionally by a rigger was in the area of $800+. This is a double lifeline setup...

Spinnaker on Pearson 30

All that rigging will save a bundle. Yes, a spinnaker on a 30 footer is definately bigger than a 20 of 25 footer, but everything is manageable. I went from an O''Day 25 to the Islander 30 and the...

Spinnaker on Pearson 30

Lots of questions. Is the mast set up for a spinnaker? Do you have a separate spinnaker halyard on a swivel at the masthead? If not, you need that. The jib halyard typically won''t do because of the...

Bulkhead mounted cabin heater. How hot?

Same message, I have a Dickinson bulkhead mounted heater (with fan) and it''s hot enough when wide open to boil water (which we have done on the top).

Inflateable Paint

Anyone have any knowledge of a paint that would stick to, and be flexible enough, for an inflateable dinghy. The dinghy in mind is a white AquaPro with some stripes. The stripes (glued on) have faded...

Teak Cabin Sole

I''ve done an solid oak sole in the past. Sealed it with a product called S1 sealer. That''s a two part epoxy sealer that is as thin as water, gets into everything. It was made by a local plastics...

Bottom Job / Barrier Coat

Sole preparation

No one else seems to want to tackle this one, so here''s my take on it. I assume that the wood has discolored with time and fuel/oil spills that have soaked into the wood? To make it look like new...

Again, it''s a bit difficult to determine if there is a problem. With the main sail up, the mast is supported fore and aft by the mainsail in tension. How much tension is on the rigging? When you go...

MAST FLEX

Need a bit more information. What is causing the mast to flex? Pounding through waves? Chances are that on a 25 ft boat (like my former 25 ft O''Day) the lower stays (single per side) are parallel to...
