Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Thanks again guys, just an update: hull does look sound, we've already painted the bottom, but will leave the rest of the painting for when we get back to New Orleans. The bulkheads need to be...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Thanks, hellosailor! More really helpful info. We'll try to look at everything very carefully. It can be difficult to do with the emotion of getting a new boat.

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Really good advice, thanks! The marine surveyor thought the bulkheads were sound, and he thought they were made of solid mahogany. We'll double check when we get there. We plan to spend a good two to...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

That's why I'm a little hesitant about the deal. It seems like the current owner might kick in some monetary help to make it a little easier, and he's already paying the marina to haul it out,...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

I don't have pics of the whole boat except from an old survey. It's 250 miles away in Florida. The current marine surveyor hasn't finished his report, but tomorrow I should have them.

I think we...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Ha, yeah, I thought about that already. I live in a marina now, and we've got some docks that have been condemned by FEMA since Katrina. My friend has moored two of his boats there for three years...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

The existing engine does not run, but we're bringing down one which definitely does. Our plan was to take 3-4 days sailing back, only during the day, only in the IWC except for maybe the part...

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Ha, no thankfully it shouldn't have any unpaid bills. I've talked to the marina, and it was kept there for free as a favor to the owner. I really don't mind fixing it up, and kind of like the idea....

Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Hey all! Someone's giving me a 1967 Islander Bahama 24', but it's got some issues and I need some help deciding on whether or not to take it.

It's moored around Destin, and I live in New Orleans...
